Frontier Bomb Scare - Man Charged

Tue Jun 18, 2013 9:03 pm

The man who allegedly claimed to have a bomb on board a Frontier flight - which caused a ruckus at DIA - is facing federal charges:

"Frontier Airlines bomb threat suspect held in federal custody at Denver Health"

There was no violence so no physical injury seems likely and I wonder why he's being held at the Health Center, unless there are mental issues, perhaps.

For those who don't know about it - story here:

And a shout out to the Frontier crew for the way they handled it.

I would guess his rant probably included suicidal tendencies or bodily harm to himself or others. The health facility probably had a padded holding area where city/county lock-up didn't across the weekend.

That East Tennessee moonshine can be some volatile stuff especially when you combine with high altitude flying.
Man can be taken from Alaska. Alaska can never be taken from the man.
