Is it just me or does it seem like airline passengers are getting crazier and crazier? The latest incident of air rage took place today at Ramon Villeda Morales International Airport in San Pedro Sula, Honduras. According to Sam Sweeney of ABC News, “An American Airlines passenger stormed the cockpit during boarding, broke the flight controls, and then tried to jump out the window as the pilot attempted to stop him.”

Here’s video of the suspect attempting to jump from the cockpit window.

Fortunately, it happened on the ground. Crew members intervened and the man was arrested. No one was injured but the 737-800 Miami-bound plane, which was going to carry 121 passengers and six crew members, has to be repaired so American is sending a new aircraft. Here’s a photo posted to Twitter by @ArielSierra of what is supposedly the plane’s cockpit controls, which are visibly damaged.

In a statement from the airline, according to Reuters, “We applaud our outstanding crew members for their professionalism in handling a difficult situation.”
