JetBlue Pilot Charged In Erratic Behavior Incident

Grand Jury Indicts Clayton Osbon With Interference With A Flight Crew

A grand jury has handed up an indictment against JetBlue pilot Clayton Osbon for interference with a flight crew after he had to be restrained during a flight March 27th.

Osbon was locked out of the cockpit by his co-pilot after he began to say "things just don't matter," while flying the A320. According to FBI documents, he told the co-pilot "We're not going to Vegas." He became disruptive, running up and down the aisle of the airplane and banging on the lavatory door, then tried to force his way back into the cockpit, He eventually had to be restrained by several passengers, and the plane made an emergency landing in Amarillo, TX, where he was arrested. While being restrained, he reportedly yelled "pray now for Jesus Christ" and "guys, push it to full throttle" along with references to terrorist, Iraq, and Iran.

Reuters reports that the court has ordered a psychiatric examination to determine his fitness to stand trial. The federal prosecutors said that the investigation is ongoing at this time. Osbon's attorney was unavailable for comment.
