BOSTON (AP) — Police on Saturday said a man who was viewing child pornography on a domestic airline flight from Salt Lake City to Boston had been arrested.

Massachusetts State Police said 47-year-old Grant Smith was sitting in first class Saturday afternoon when a fellow passenger saw the pornographic images on Mr. Smith’s laptop and alerted the flight crew.

When the Delta Air Lines flight landed at Boston Logan International Airport just after 4 p.m., troopers interviewed Mr. Smith and subsequently arrested him.

He has been charged with possession of child pornography, and police said additional charges could follow. His bail was set at $15,000. He is scheduled to be arraigned Monday.

Mr. Smith was in police custody Saturday night and couldn’t immediately be reached for comment.
