On the matter, a passenger of the flight, Jim Dickey, explained for the CNN means that the aggressor began to unleash the chaos approximately one hour after the flight began.
“The unidentified passenger became a rebel about an hour after the flight began. He hit the seat in front of him and the lady screamed. You could tell by the sound that the plane started descending pretty quickly after the stewardesses started to notice,” he said.
Also, the TMZ media revealed that the pilot of the plane warned passengers that he would divert the trip due to a “rear security problem.
It all began when the man took shelter in the bathroom for 10 minutes. So there were three American Airlines crew members who were “super worried and huddled around the bathroom door. One passenger explained to TMZ that he smoked cannabis.
