“Toledo man charged in flight fracas,” by Tammy Stables Battaglia for the Detroit Free Press, January 7:
The Toledo man who Wednesday yelled racial slurs and caused a Detroit flight from Miami to turn around is being held in a Florida jail today.
Mansor Mohammad Asad, 43, has been charged with threats against a public servant, disorderly conduct and resisting arrest after the incident aboard Delta Airlines flight 2485, according to the Miami-Dade Police Department.
Asad told the judge at his court appearance today that he didn’t feel he was a public threat. The judge cited his death to Jews comment and the comment about the African American officer and said he disagreed. He told him he would get a lawyer appointed for the man and bring him back tomorrow.
Witnesses told investigators that Asad yelled anti-Semitic references such as, “I’m Palestinian and I want kill all the Jews,” in Arabic. The pilot turned around as the plane was taxiing for take-off at 6:35 p.m., according to police.
But Asad charged officers while he was in custody, using racial slurs and threats while he chanted, leading police to use a Taser to subdue him. Officers then escorted the Asad off and performed a safety inspection of the plane before it continued on to Detroit. H/T Jihad Watch
