LAS VEGAS (AP) - An aircraft mechanic from Atlanta who police say created a disturbance at a Las Vegas airport security checkpoint and referred to planes falling from the sky is facing misdemeanor criminal charges.

Court documents say Neutne Michaelangelo Williamson is due in court Sept. 19 following his arrest June 16 at McCarran International Airport. He faces harassment and violation of airport rules charges.

Attempts to reach Williamson on Tuesday weren’t immediately successful.

A police report alleges he declared that people’s lives were in his hands and told a police sergeant there was a reason planes “fall out of the sky.”

McCarran airport spokesman Chris Jones noted that Williamson was a traveler, not an employee at the Las Vegas airport.

A spokeswoman for his employer, ExpressJet, said the company is investigating the incident.

WSB-TV in Atlanta reported (https://2wsb.tv/29l3fxR ) that Williamson worked at Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport.

Las Vegas police said a Delta Air Lines official refused to grant Williamson a boarding pass and Williamson wouldn’t leave the airport peacefully.
