A passenger on a flight from Vegas to LAX last night made the skies much less friendly, when he got sloshed and dropped the b-word somewhere over the Mojave.

The bomb scare prompted the pilot to turn the plane around mid-flight and land back at McCarran Airport in Vegas, ABC 7 reports.

Authorities didn't find a bomb on Spirit Airlines flight 245, but they took the man into custody and put all the passengers on a different flight.
