A Las Vegas man who was a passenger on American Airlines flight 2542 early Thursday morning in route from Ontario, California, to Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, which was diverted to Lubbock, has been charged in a federal criminal complaint with interference with a flight crew.

The office of U.S Attorney John Parker of the Northern District of Texas said, Jerry Ba Nguyen, remained detained after his initial court appearance Friday, pending a detention hearing.

According to the complaint, Nguyen, 24, “knowingly interfered and attempted to interfere with the performance of the duties of a flight crew member and flight attendant, lessening their ability to perform their duties, by assaulting and intimidating the flight attendant and flight crew member by refusing to comply with instructions from flight attendants and attempting to forcibly enter the cockpit.” – READ MORE
