American Airlines Flight Returns To Airport After Plane Hits Runway Sign

The man was brought to the front of the plane after landing to disembark first because of some unusual behaviors that he was exhibiting, such as touching other passengers' faces and spraying a spray bottle on them.

Police say none of the passengers desired prosecution against the man, but trespassing charges are pending. An American Airlines passenger jumped from a grounded plane after landing at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport in Arizona on Friday morning, Fox News reported. He was randomly touching the faces of other passengers and spraying them with an unknown substance from a bottle.

The man was brought to the front of the plane to be escorted off after it landed at terminal 4, but he was able to open an emergency exit and jump from the plane.

According to Hannah Johnson - a website developer from Duluth, Minnesota, who was on the flight - told the Arizona Republic that the man had been acting in a disruptive manner an hour into the flight. Johnson said he tried to hit other passengers, including her.

American Airlines released a statement, that said: 'American had requested law enforcement meet flight 1346 upon arrival in Phoenix due to a disruptive passenger.

"While waiting for the door to the jet way to open, the man opened the service door on the opposite side of the aircraft and jumped out".

Thompson says police do not know what was in the spray bottle.

"Law enforcement and paramedics responded". Workers at the airport stopped the man and he was taken into custody by Phoenix Police officers without incident.
