Another scare in the air!
Flight 211 was headed from New York’s J.F.K. airport to Las Vegas, but the pilot quickly decided to land in nearby Detroit out of “an abundance of caution” when the passenger refused to calm down, JetBlue said in a statement.
In a passenger video obtained by ABC News, the window-seated man stands up and begins shouting and throwing punches.

“All of a sudden, this guy who was sleeping just woke up out of nowhere and started flipping out,” fellow passenger Mark Verity told ABC.
The man was taken into custody in Detroit, JetBlue said, and it’s undetermined whether he was charged with a crime.
Luckily for other passengers, after two hours in Detroit, the plane continued on to the final destination.
