BOSTON (AP) -- An airline passenger who apparently became disoriented and tried to open a cabin door on a US Airways Express commuter jet from Maine to Philadelphia has been arrested in Boston.
Massachusetts state police say 40-year-old Michael J. Ensalaco, of Mooresville, N.C., was held on a charge of interfering with a flight crew.
Airline spokesman Andrew Christie says Flight 3801 operated by Air Wisconsin was diverted Thursday to Logan International Airport. Christie says a flight attendant subdued the man and a passenger watched him until the plane landed safely at 4:30 p.m. He says the other passengers deplaned and were interviewed by police.
A neighbor who answered at Ensalaco's home says he's had seizures before but not while traveling.
The flight from Portland had 50 passengers and three crew members.
