Unruly Passenger Forces Plane Landing at Boston

Quote:
BOSTON (Reuters) - An international flight made an unscheduled landing on Wednesday at Boston's Logan International Airport because of an unruly passenger, who was taken into custody by the FBI, Massachusetts state police said.

Police said the plane was headed from Cancun, Mexico, to Rome, Italy, before it landed at Logan at 9:10 a.m. (1310 GMT).

Boston radio station WBZ said fighter jets escorted the flight to the airport, and that the man was tied up when he was removed from the plane by the FBI. It said the flight was chartered.

Air Europe Flight Diverted to Logan

Air Europe Flight Diverted to Logan

BOSTON -- A charter flight bound from Cancun to Rome was diverted to Logan International Airport Wednesday morning after a passenger spat on the wall and slightly injured the person sitting next to him, according to an FBI spokeswoman.

The unruly passenger, Adrea Cafiero, appeared to be drunk, FBI spokeswoman Gail Marcinkiewicz said. Crew members on the Air Europe flight subdued him and, according to Logan spokesman Phil Orlandella, tied him to his seat.

State police took Cafiero into custody and turned him over to the FBI after the Boeing 777 landed at 9:10 a.m. Television footage shows Cafiero being carried off the plane with his hands and feet bound.

There were 307 passengers and 13 crew members aboard Flight PE2065, Orlandella said. It departed Cancun at 4:10 a.m. local time, or 5:10 a.m. Boston time, Marcinkiewicz said. The disturbance occurred between 7:30 and 8 a.m.
