Yazeed Mohammed-Abunayyan was charged with interfering with the operation of an aircraft in federal court Wednesday.
According to court documents, Abunayyan, who is from Saudi Arabia, became upset shortly after boarding Continental Flight 1113 because he was not seated next to his traveling companion.
Shortly after the flight took off, Abunayyan allegedly tried to light an electronic cigarette. When a female flight attendant asked him to stop, court documents state that Abunayyan ignored her, then started yelling and cursing. When the flight attendant left her seat and approached him, Abunayyan reportedly tried to punch her.
Abunayyan also allegedly hit or tried to hit several passengers who came to the flight attendant’s aid, all while speaking or singing about Osama bin Laden and professing his hatred for women.
