Members Of Soccer Team Subdue Man On Flight

Persons on board American Airlines flight 727, headed to Los Angeles from Boston were faced with some tense moments as a passenger's behavior turned bizarre. The man who was described as a clean cut man in his 20's appeared from one of the plane's restrooms naked.

  Members of the New England Revolution of Major League Soccer were among those on board the flight. The soccer team's general manager, Craig Tornberg, confronted the man telling him that he should put his clothes back on. The man replied with "I don't hear you, I don't see you." However, a few moments later he put his clothes back on.

It wasn't long after the man got dressed that he made a run for the exit door and tried to open it. That's when Tornberg along with other staff members from the soccer team grabbed him and held him down in a seat until the flight attendant could tie him up.

The pilot diverted the flight to the Will Rogers World Airport in Oklahoma City, Ok. The man was taken into custody and transported to a crisis center for mental evaluation . The flight reached it's destination to Los Angeles safely.
