BOSTON (AP) - Authorities say a passenger on a flight departing from Boston was arrested after refusing to take his seat and after other passengers reported that he had placed a suspicious plastic bag in the overhead bin. State police say 35-year-old Ognjen Milatovic of Hudson refused the crew's request to hang up his cell phone and sit down. The Monday morning US Airways Inc. flight was headed to Reagan National Airport in Washington.
Officials removed Milatovic and his carry-on luggage, which passengers said was making odd noises. His checked piece of luggage also was removed. No threat was found. Milatovic was charged with interfering with a flight crew and disorderly conduct. He is scheduled to be arraigned later Monday. The flight departed an hour late without incident.
