山东十一选五预测 www.3ly15.cn a group of people standing in front of a building? KOTV / An unruly passenger on a Delta flight will pay the airline $9,118 for the cost of diverting the aircraft after pleading guilty to a federal assault charge.

Prosecutors say Washington state resident Bolutife Olorunda verbally assaulted and interfered with a flight attendant on a May 30 flight from Oregon to Atlanta, prompting the pilot to declare an emergency and land in Tulsa. The flight eventually went to Atlanta.

Authorities say Olorunda told the flight attendant, "don’t touch me and if you touch me again you will regret it," according to an affadavit obtained by News 4 in Oklahoma.

He was singing and screaming, according to News on 6.

After he ignored a flight attendant and an Air Marshal, the plane was diverted to Tulsa International Airport. He was arrested and charged with interference with flight crew members and attendants after the plane landed.

"Airline passengers must follow the instructions of flight staff. If they do not, there are consequences," U.S. Attorney R. Trent Shores said in a statement on Wednesday. "Mr. Olorunda learned that those consequences can include diversion of a commercial flight and federal prosecution. The defendant will be reimbursing the airline for the cost of diverting that flight."

Shores also praised the "quick thinking and decision making" by the flight crew and Air Marshals.

"Their actions should inspire confidence in the safety and security of commercial air travel in America," he said.

There were 178 passengers on the flight, including two Air Marshals, according to ABC News.

Olorunda additionally faces up to six months in prison and a $5,000 fine.
