Police: Man arrested over threatening others on flight

SEATTLE (AP) — Seattle police arrested a man accused of threatening other passengers on a flight to Chicago late Saturday night. Video from a passenger shows the man walking in the aisle and shouting that he would kill everyone on board “in the name of Jesus.” The Seattle Times reported that the incident occurred shortly after Alaska Airlines Flight 422 left Seattle. Police say the man was unarmed and no one was injured. The flight crew, two passengers and a law enforcement officer who happened to be on board quickly subdued the man. The plane returned to Seattle-Tacoma International Airport where he was arrested. He was booked on suspicion of harassment.
