Wonder what Obama will say about this ? And this SANTA ANA, Calif. — Passengers said they had to tackle a man who was behaving aggressively and grabbing women during a flight from Chicago to Orange County’s John Wayne Airport Tuesday night.
Durrani will be charged with a federal offense for interference with a flight crew, FBI spokeswoman Laura Eimiller said.
Durrani began pacing around the plane about 45 minutes into the flight and was grabbing women and harassing people, passenger David Truong told the newspaper.
“He grabbed my hair and lifted my head up and said, `I want to kiss you,’” said another passenger, Nona Pitts.
When the man started scaring children on the plane, Truong said he and three other passengers took action and physically restrained the “unbelievably strong” man with belts.
“I was on his chest and three other guys were holding his arms and legs,” Truong said.
The man was restrained for nearly three hours, and a doctor on the flight tried to sedate him with valium.
“He would go in and out of consciousness, but every time he came around he would try to fight again,” Truong said.
Durrani, who also goes by Ash, is listed as an actor in one movie that hasn’t been released. His agent, Sheila Di Marco, said Wednesday she hadn’t heard anything about the incident.
Religion Of Peace, right?
Mexican drug cartel = Mexican terrorists’
Didn’t the cartels murder a CARDINAL in Guadalajara 20 years ago? Nothing new in the borderlands.
Piedras Negras ping!
All this is happening 330 miles from my house.
Why do we not have the United States military on site with the border closed?
If Texas and Arizona were solid dimrat state, they would have locked down the border a long time ago.
Eagle Pass/Laredo are represented by dim congressmen who do NOTHING to protect their homes and their friends.
Party first, country well somewhere way down the line.
