JetBlue Pilot Charged

The JetBlue pilot who had a psychological meltdown Tuesday aboard a Las Vegas–bound flight has been charged with interference with a flight crew, federal prosecutors in Texas said Wednesday. More details emerged about the flight, where a copilot had to take the controls over from the pilot, Clayton Osbon, 49, who allegedly told the copilot “things don’t matter,” and “we’re not going to Vegas.” Then he began preaching a sermon, causing the copilot to lock Osbon out of the cockpit. Osbon reportedly had to be restrained by four passengers and the plane made an emergency landing in Amarillo, Texas.
