Canadian restrained on flight to Miami arrested
A Canadian man is in custody for rushing toward the front of an American Airlines flight from Jamaica after the plane landed in Miami.
The FBI said the man faces federal charges including interference with a flight crew. He is scheduled to appear in court on Tuesday. It's not known if he has an attorney.
The FBI said the incident was not terrorism-related and the man is not on the "no fly list."
Airline officials said the disoriented passenger stood up from his seat after landing Friday at Miami International Airport from Montego Bay. The flight was taxiing and he didn't obey crew member instructions to sit down. Authorities said he rushed toward the cockpit and bumped the door. He was subdued by some of the 165 passengers on Flight 320 and held until police could remove him from the plane, a Boeing 757-200.
A Miami-Dade Police detective told a local CBS TV channel that the man appeared to be drunk.
Ryan Snider, 24, has been charged with disorderly intoxication and resisting arrest, as well as the federal charges. Police did not provide Snider's hometown.
