Man threatens passenger, says he's a terrorist

Man threatens passenger, says he's a terrorist

Quote:
A Boeing 747 en route from Minneapolis to Tokyo was diverted to Anchorage on Thursday and searched by bomb-sniffing dogs after an unruly passenger claimed to be a terrorist, federal officials said.

The plane remained in Anchorage overnight, said Eric Gonzalez, a special agent in the FBI's Anchorage office.

Matthew Leggett, 42, of Houston was arrested on felony charges of interfering with a flight crew, Gonzalez said. Leggett was taken into custody by airport police without incident and was taken to Alaska Psychiatric Institute, Gonzalez said.
