A man accused of causing a disturbance on a Delta flight from Seattle to Maui on Monday is headed to a halfway house on Oahu.
Eric Schneider, 23, of San Francisco is charged with “interference with flight crew members and attendants.”
The FBI said Schneider was drinking, and two hours into the flight, threatened to kill one of the passengers and began swearing at the flight crew.
He was arrested when the plane landed in Kahului.
“The time to start your drunken party vacation in Hawaii is after you check into the resort, not when you’re at 30,000-feet in a flight full of families,” said FBI special agent Tom Simon.
The judge ordered Schneider to get mental health and substance abuse evaluations at a halfway house. After that, Schneider can return to San Francisco on $10,000 bond.
