A man earlier tried to rush the cockpit while allegedly screaming jihad. It appears that he has no terrorist connections and is just mentally disturbed. A redditor was on the flight and has video of them restraining the passenger:
(CNN)A United Airlines flight made a U-turn in the sky after a passenger ran toward the cockpit screaming “jihad, jihad,” according to a government official with direct knowledge of the incident.
There is nothing, so far, in the man’s background to suggest he has a connection to terrorists, the government source said. His mental state at the time is unknown, and no weapons were found after he was subdued.
And then there’s this lady who was smoking on the plane while trying to blame her seatmate for the smoke who then screamed about Venezuela until the flight landed and the police carted her off.
