Passenger removed from Boston-to-Washington flight
BOSTON (AP) — Authorities on Monday said a passenger on a flight departing from Boston was arrested after refusing to take his seat and after other passengers reported that he had placed a suspicious plastic bag in the overhead bin.
Massachusetts State Police said 35-year-old Ognjen Milatovic (OHN’-yen mee-luh-TOE’-vich) of Hudson refused the crew’s request to turn off his cell phone and sit down. The Monday-morning US Airways flight was headed to Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport in Arlington, Va.
Officials removed Mr. Milatovic and his carry-on luggage, which allegedly was making odd noises. His checked piece of luggage also was removed. No threat was found.
Mr. Milatovic was charged with interfering with a flight crew and disorderly conduct. He is scheduled to be arraigned later Monday.
The flight departed an hour late without incident.
