SALT LAKE CITY — An airline passenger allegedly admitted to taking meth and scaring flight crews, forcing a flight to divert to Salt Lake International Airport over Labor Day Weekend.

According to federal court documents, James Harold Jones, 45, of Kentucky, was on a Delta Airlines flight from Portland, Oregon, to Atlanta, Georgia, on Sept. 3.

Witnesses reported that Jones would not remain in his seat and refused to listen to flight crew instructions as the plane took off from Portland. He stated he was feeling unwell to flight attendants, and they provided him with ginger ale which settled him down briefly.

However, according to court documents, Jones started forcing napkins and most towelettes into the vents above his seat.

“As the plane was in flight, Jones was yelling that he was being poisoned, and demanding to speak to the captain and to the FBI,” according to court documents. “Jones would not remain seated and was moving from row to row through the cabin.”
