That JetBlue Pilot Who Freaked Out Was Indicted

Troubles keep piling up for the JetBlue pilot who melted down last month. Not only was he suspended, but now he’s been indicted. In a federal court in Texas, he was charged with interfering with a flight crew.

According to CNN, court documents say the pilot “did knowingly and willingly interfere and attempt to interfere with the performance of the duties of a flight crew member and flight attendant.”

Last week, the U.S. attorney’s office suggested the pilot — who was wrestled to the ground by passengers after he started ranting and raving — is possibly mentally incompetent and may not be able to comprehend the charges he faces.
