Passenger Takes Down His Pants for Delayed JetBlue Flight

JetBlue flight 1151 from Tampa to San Juan was delayed yesterday, and one passenger just wasn’t going to take it. He “took down his pants.”

The passenger, who had a “rottweiler mix service dog” with him, “threatened to kill a gate agent from JetBlue.”

“He kept screaming that he wanted his plane, for them to get the plane there, and they were trying to calm him down,” [another passenger] said. …His possessions, including a backpack and dog food and water bowls, were scattered around the terminal.

“When he started fighting with the cops and got thrown to the ground and was still kicking police, I said, this is not going to end good,” Beckner said.

Here’s video of the incident.

The man was arrested, charged with battery of a law enforcement official, and carried out of the terminal.

The flight, by the way, wasn’t even an hour late.
