Airline Passenger Taken Into Custody at LAX After Acting Weird and Spending Too Much Time in the Bathroom
A passenger for American Airlines was taken into the custody of the FBI at LAX this morning after spending too much time in the bathroom on the plane and "acting suspiciously."
When flight 2401 arrived from Dallas/Fort Worth around 7:45 a.m. this morning, FBI agents were waiting to take the suspicious man into custody, reports City News Service. What exactly he did to warrant attention from the FBI isn't clear.
NBC Los Angeles reported that one of the passengers posted somewhere online that the man claimed explosives were on the flight, but the airline's spokesman Ed Martelle swatted down that claim when he spoke to CNS: "At no time did he shout or make threats. He had no explosives. He was compliant."
The FBI told CNS that the man was taken into custody for a mental evaluation.
