Unruly passenger on diverted Delta Air Lines flight identified as off-duty flight attendant

“This is the captain speaking,” a voice can be heard saying in footage of the incident. “We’d like all strong males to the front of the aircraft to handle a problem passenger.”

Delta Air Lines on Saturday identified an unruly passenger on a Friday night flight from Los Angeles to Atlanta as an off-duty flight attendant.

Cellphone video shows passengers on top of the person and reveals a voice on the plane’s public-address system: “This is the captain speaking. We’d like all strong males to the front of the aircraft to handle a problem passenger.”

The flight was diverted to Oklahoma City, and the FBI took the person into custody based on unknown allegations. The passenger’s name was not released.

FBI spokeswoman Megan Lauro would only say the FBI was investigating the incident.
