A Maryland man has been arrested after police say he made threats to blow up the Southwest Airlines plane he was on.
On November 22, Southwest Airlines advised they had an unruly passenger on a flight departing from Oakland, California en route to Baltimore. The Southwest Pilot turned the flight around and returned to Oakland International. Deputies arrived and contacted the suspected unruly passenger, 32-year-old Arpan Shah from Maryland.
Shah reportedly told several passengers while the plane was taxiing out on the runway, that he was going to blow up the plane and continued to say it was going to blow up while in the air.

Did he want something from the allah snackbar?
What’s he saying; I got you, babe?
Uh, I don't think so.
Amen, bro. I noticed that, too.
There's no mention of which Tea Party group he belonged to and was taught to hate.
“Time, Newsweek, the Lifesavers, and the second time bomb from the right.”
That's from Airplane II, The Sequel.
I couldn't find a Youtube clip, but he's actually telling the clerk that he'd like to buy a bomb from the sales rack.
Like saying 'Allahu Akbar' or something like that??
Whoever he was making the threats to was remiss in not alerting the crew before the airplane took off.
Trump (or his ‘unknown sources’) should drop the little tidbit of them trying to hire the head of El Al or the head of Israel Airline Security Group as head of Homeland Security OR at least make him the Lead Deputy in charge of Airline Security.
OR better still make him the SECURITY CZAR as we found such a person/title serves strictly at the hand of the Pres with absolutely no overseers...ie Congress etal
That would get heads spinning
Left out the part of whether or not they actually found a bomb.
An explosive detection team was deployed to the airplane and conducted a thorough search of the aircraft. The passengers and baggage were re-screened, further delaying the flight.
TSA, FBI and Oakland Airport Security worked with Alameda County Sheriffs Office to make sure the passengers and aircraft were safe.
That, my FRiend’s - is a jihadi beard style!
Dead giveaway (pardon the pun)
I thought the same thing. With the name Shah, I’d guess Pakistan.
One might ponder, since there appears to have been no bomb on board, what was he was trying to accomplish ?
My God, man! Don't you realize that "If you see something, say something" can NEVER be applied toward people who look like this?
Well, after January 20 it will be OK.
Whoa...real cherub, that one...
