Man arrested for damaging US jet in Honduras released

Man arrested for damaging US jet in Honduras released

He was freed because the airline did not press charges, said Security Secretary spokesman Edgardo Barahona.

A traveler arrested in Honduras for harming the cockpit of an American Airlines jet during boarding was delivered by authorities hours after the fact. The flight scheduled to depart for Miami on Tuesday evening was postponed for quite a long time until a substitution plane could be sorted out. The flight arrived in Florida early Wednesday, around eight hours late. The traveler arrested in the occurrence, in any case, was delivered by experts in Honduras.

The aggression toward the pilot and the crew of the airline was not serious.

The Texas airline did not immediately confirm that it did not press charges Wednesday.

The cockpit door was open before the breach at the international airport in San Pedro Sula, Honduras, American Airlines said.

Crew members intervened and the individual was ultimately apprehended by local law enforcement, an airline spokesman said.

Airport security removed the man from the plane and turned him over to the National Police, who took him to a hospital for a series of tests.

He was taken to an assistance center because according to other passengers he was acting strangely as if under the effects of some type of hallucinogen, Barahona said.

The man was from the coastal city of La Ceiba and had no prior criminal history, according to police. The flight had 121 passengers and six crew members.
