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.
