Crazed American terrorises fellow airline passengers

You can count on Americans for bizarre, often dangerous behaviour, but an airline passenger on board a JetBlue flight from New York to San Francisco this week set new standards of mania.

The man refused to wear a mask, threatened other passengers, groped a woman and was seen "snorting a white substance."

Mark Anthony Scerbo, of Mechanicville, New York, was arrested for drug possession in Minneapolis after JetBlue flight 915 from New York City to San Francisco made an unscheduled stop in Minnesota to kick him off the flight.

It was alleged Scerbo refused to wear a mask so he could snort cocaine.

A bag filled with a white substance was confiscated by cabin crew after the man was "acting erratically and aggressively" towards cabin crew and other passengers, the airline said in a statement.

"The flight was met by law enforcement, the customer was removed and the flight continued on to San Francisco," JetBlue added.

In a cell phone video recorded aboard the flight, an attendant could be heard telling passengers that a passenger allegedly touched another passenger, refused to wear a mask and made repeated trips to the bathroom.

He was also seen making stabbing gestures toward other passengers.

"It was decided that all four flight attendants felt uncomfortable with what was going on," he said. "This was the closest place to go, so we as a team made the decision to come here."

Passengers alleged the man also yelled racial slurs. It is believed that he is known to police.


  1. Don't you just love the name of the place he's from - Mechanicville.

  2. There are a few crazy US place names.
