Wednesday, August 21, 2013
By George Hatcher

AirTran flight 265 was en route from Baltimore to Austin, Texas when a passenger became unruly while the flight was over Little Rock Arkansas.

Pilots diverted to Memphis Airport when the unruly passenger tried to open the door to the plane.

The passenger was apparently not drunk and cooperated with authorities, however Randolph Robinson of Texas is charged with “knowingly and willfully attempting to damage, destroy, disable and wreck an aircraft, specifically, AirTran Airways Flight 265, by attempting to open exits while the aircraft was in flight.”

The FBI interrogated him for two hours.
