Person who disrupted flight to Hawaii detained

American Airlines said its Honolulu-bound flight, an Airbus A321, was carrying 181 passengers and six crew members.

Uskanil had already been arrested hours earlier at Los Angeles International Airport for opening a door that led onto an airfield ramp, according to Los Angeles Airport Police, who provided Uskanil's identity to The Associated Press.

Los Angeles airport police spokesman Rob Pedregon said Uskanil was a ticketed American Airlines passenger with a boarding pass who had cleared security screening but claimed that he lost his way because he was tipsy from drinking.

They say Uskanil was arrested on suspicion of misdemeanor trespassing and was given a date to appear in court.

A flight attendant said it must belong to a man in the bathroom.

Man injured when motorcycle hits 10-foot gator
Florida Highway Patrol said that the motorcyclist was heading west on State Road 674 in Wimauma when he hit the gator. On Wednesday night in Sarasota County, another alligator was struck and killed by a auto on Interstate 75.

The flight attendant ran down the aisle with her serving cart and blocked the doorway separating first class from the rest of the plane. Passengers told ABC News during the flight he started walking to the front of the plane with a blanket over his head and a laptop in his hand.

Lee and Penny Lorenzen of Orange County, California, were sitting in first class and saw a unusual look on the flight attendant's face. "Local law enforcement responded once the civilian airliner was on the ground", said Commander Dave Benham, without elaborating on the nature of the disturbance or name of the airline.

Lorenzen says other passengers grabbed the man. The man attempted to use a door off-limits to the public after 3 a.m. PT (6 a.m. ET) while waiting for his flight. The pilot called for help and the Air Force scrambled two fighter jets to escort the plane to Honolulu.

A spokesperson for LAX, where the flight departed at 8:43 a.m. local time on Friday, confirmed they were aware of the incident but declined further comment.

Law enforcement officers were requested to meet a plane that landed Friday in Honolulu because of a passenger disturbance.

A person who caused a disturbance on a flight between Los Angeles and Honolulu has been detained. "We were greeted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation". The man has been detained, the Department of Homeland Security said in a statement. She was not aware of injuries.
