An airport spokesman says a passenger on a USAirways flight departing from Boston was arrested after refusing to take his seat and other passengers reported that he had placed a suspicious item in the overhead bin.

Logan International Airport spokesman Phil Orlandella said the 35-year-old man refused the flight crew's request to hang up his cell phone and sit down on the Reagan National Airport-bound flight on Monday morning.

Officials removed the passenger as well as his carry-on luggage that was allegedly making odd noises. His checked piece of luggage also was removed. Orlandella said no threat was found.

The man, whose name was not released, was charged with interfering with a flight crew and disorderly conduct.

The flight later departed without incident.

So, OldFool8, was it your resolution to be as ignorant as possible? You are off to a great start.

OldFool8 must be a horrible person and live a depressing life. Too bad for him. It must suck to go through life angry. Get help now. Its never too late to enjoy life.

People like OldSalt8, who are overly preoccupied with the sex lives of others, are usually closet perverts themselves. Your preoccupations are showing!!

OldSalt8, I would bet it was some self-important capitalist businessman. What went wrong in your life?

I believe OldSalt8 may be very gay. Not that there is anything wrong with that.

The homophobic are typically those with repressed homosexual feelings. OldSalt8 must be very gay. Not that there is anything wrong with that. Except to him.
