Watch as Twin Cities Airport Police Remove Couple from Plane – (VIDEO)
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Airport officials say a man and a woman disrupted a Delta Air Lines flight to Los Angeles, prompting the flight crew to return to Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport.
Airport spokesman Patrick Hogan says the flight took off at 6:20 p.m. Wednesday but returned at 7:35 p.m. Hogan says the flight crew reported the couple became disruptive and refused to follow instructions. He didn't know the nature of the disruption.
Airport police arrested the pair and they were questioned by police and the FBI.
Police reports show 35-year-old Blake Adam Fleisig, of Los Angeles, and 36-year-old Anna Christine Koosmann, of Edina, Minnesota, were ticketed for disorderly conduct. Jail records show Koosmann was also ticketed for obstructing police, and had to post bail.
Passenger video shows Fleisig scuffling with another passenger as officers removed him and Koosmann cursing as officers escort her off.
