An American Airlines flight from Boston to Los Angeles was diverted to Oklahoma City on Friday after a passenger stripped, put his clothes back on and then tried to open an emergency exit door before being subdued by members of a Major League Soccer team on board, the FBI said.
"He was completely naked. I mean, he'd taken off his clothes, sleeping across the three seats," said passenger David Pease, who was sitting next to the man.
Members of the New England Revolution professional soccer team helped diffuse the situation.
"Then he sat back down in his seat, and then about five or 10 minutes later, when he got up again, and it appeared as though he was going to the bathroom, but that's when he didn't and went for the emergency exit door," Burns said.
The man, whose name was not immediately released, was taken off the flight in Oklahoma City and was undergoing mental evaluation, Johnson said.
Burns added that the man was fairly emotional at times.
"There were times he was crying. There were times he was kind of laughing. ...It was very strange," Burns said.
"He was pretty mild as far as a guy who was first, naked, and the secondly, running for the door to jump out," Tornberg said. "If he walked by you right now, you probably wouldn't notice, unless of course he was naked."
Now, try and tell me that wasn't Phil Gramm. You know it was.
