The man at the center of a hoax that forced a Dallas bound plane to return to Philadelphia Thursday, was arrested when he finally made it to Dallas hours later.

Apparently, he is innocent. He was “swatted” by his ex-girlfriend and her new boyfriend.
“According to CBS News, an ex-girlfriend and her new boyfriend phoned in a phony liquid bomb threat as the jet took off. The plane was turned around, with the pilot telling passengers there was a mechanical problem.”
Throw the book at both of them!
He seems to be innocent as far as the problem with the airline goes. It came out on the local news last night that he has been in trouble before for other things.
While this guy may have had warrants for his arrest, he was put in a literally life-threatening situation by a vindictive ex-girl friend. They should throw the book at her and her new boyfriend who helped her. And maybe this will give the victim a chance to reassess his life, face up to his past bad acts and put himself on the right course.
There ain’t no good in an evil-hearted woman
And I ain’t cut out to be no Jesse James
And you don’t go writing hot cheques down in Mississippi
And there ain’t no good chain gang
I was gonna make it to court until I got high
I was gonna file my big appeal but then I got high
Now my life is all messed up and I know why (why man?)
- cause I got high / cause I got high / cause I got high
