Unruly Passenger From Upstate New York Forces JetBlue Flight To Be Diverted

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) -- An unruly passenger caused a flight from John F. Kennedy International Airport to San Francisco to be diverted to Minneapolis.

People on board said the man was maskless and harassing others.

In a video posted on Twitter, a flight attendant can be heard saying he was acting erratically and "snorting a white substance."

The incident happened Sunday afternoon.

Police arrested the man once the plane landed. He was identified as 42-year-old Mark Anthony Scerbo from upstate New York.

JetBlue said the flight continued to San Francisco after he was removed.
