American Airlines Passenger Cited for Intoxication After Growling at Crew

Timothy Armstong is the latest unruly passenger to get captured on video. The incident occurred on American Airlines flight 1802 from Los Angeles to Salt Lake City on Monday.

In the video, you can see the passenger yelling at one of the Pilots, presumably on a bathroom break, and then shouts, “Joe Biden! Really?” He is later seen snarling and growling while he adjusts his mask.

Dennis Busch, 35, from Salt Lake City, took video of Armstrong and thanked the airline crew for their handling of the situation.

An American Airlines spokesperson said Armstrong was met by law enforcement after arriving at Salt Lake City International Airport. The flight was carrying 162 passengers, including six crew members.

“The flight landed safely at SLC where local law enforcement removed the disruptive passenger from the aircraft,” the spokesperson said. “We thank our crew for their professionalism and our customers for their understanding.”

 Armstrong was cited for public intoxication and disorderly conduct according to police.
