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.”

A 10-year-old boy on vacation with his family in the Florida Keys was attacked by a shark over the weekend while snorkeling at Looe Key, state wildlife police confirmed Monday.

Jameson Reeder Jr. on Saturday was airlifted by helicopter to a Miami-Dade hospital, where doctors amputated his leg just below the knee “to save his life as it was not operable from the damage the shark had caused,” his uncle Joshua Reeder posted on Facebook.

“They said the shark made the decision for him,” Reeder posted on his Facebook page on Sunday. “But his life was spared. Thank you, Yeshua/Jesus!!”

The family believes an eight-foot bull shark bit the boy’s leg. As he screamed for help, Jameson clung to a pool noodle and his father drove the boat over to rescue him, the post said.

Recent shark bites in the Keys

 

On June 29, a 35-year-old Texas woman was attacked by a shark while in the water with her family on the Gulf side near Sawyer Key in the Lower Keys. The shark left a large wound on her leg.

A man was left with an eight-inch laceration on his lower leg from a shark bite on April 17 while at a popular sandbar in the Upper Keys.

In mid-July, another vacationer was bitten on his pinky finger by a shark while trying to remove a hook from its mouth during a fishing trip with his family. Authorities, however, did not consider this an attack.

Brett Reeder, of Parrish in Manatee County, was airlifted to a Miami-Dade hospital for the injury, which happened near Content Keys, a group of mangrove-covered islands north of Big Torch Key in the Lower Keys.
