A violent passenger compelled an American Airlines flight from Arizona to Minnesota to opt for an emergency landing on Friday after the said person, apparently told people that he was on drugs ( cocaine to be precise) before latching himself in the airplane bathroom and ultimately lighting up marijuana in the cabin, according to a report.
Nearly after an hour into the flight from Phoenix to Minneapolis, the pilot declared that there was “a security issue in the back,” which imposed the flight to be deflected and land in Denver, Colorado
Some news channels reported that passengers heard whispers about a man in the back telling others that on the flight he was on cocaine. Just after some time, the man reportedly fled to the bathroom in the back of the plane, shutting himself in for 10 minutes as flight attendants moved to and fro in a panic to get him out.
As the plane was about to land, the man exited the lavatory and went back to his seat, where he was described as very jittery, according to TMZ.
Once the aircraft was safely onto the runway, a video shows the man being thwarted by the flight attendance staff, as well as police officers and EMT.
That’s when he chose to light up what seemed to be a joint, as staff strived to grab it.News reports.
The aviator had asked he first 13 rows of passengers to depart the plane so they could withdraw the man in question, who apparently whacked one of the other passengers as they endeavored to exit.
The anonymous man was ultimately handcuffed by police, who placed him on a stretcher where he was found screaming, “Take it off, it hurts. I’ll f***ing kill you!”
The plane left for Minneapolis two hours later, according to the outlet. Looks like the self-proclaimed Druggie caused quite a trouble for everyone.
