A criminal accusation identified the passenger as Asiel Christian Norton.
Delta Air Lines Flight 386 Converted to Albuquerque on Friday After Norton reportedly rushed in front of the plane and began knocking on the door leading to the flight deck, shouting, “We need to land this plane.”
According to investigators, Norton ran in front of the plane shortly after the first drink service and trash picking. A flight attendant working in the previous galley tried to bring Norton back to his seat. Norton reportedly pushed the flight attendants and began knocking on the doors of the flight deck.
Flight attendants and passengers took control of Norton and took him to the rear of the aircraft. Once on the ground, Albuquerque FBI agents responded.
Criminal accusations allege that Norton “illegally and deliberately assaulted and threatened the crew.”
Flight attendants told investigators that Norton did not appear to be affected and was not served alcohol during the flight.
Norton will appear in federal court in New Mexico on Tuesday morning.
