MyFoxDetroit.com – Sources tell Fox 2 that a flight from Amsterdam into Detroit Metropolitan Airport was held on the tarmac after landing because of unruly behavior by some of the passengers.
The source says four men from Saudi Arabai were saying something in Arabic that alarmed four on-board Federal Air Marshals. The Marshals speak Arabic. A decision was made to stop the plane on the tarmac away from the passenger terminal and remove the men from the plane.
Once the men were removed, the rest of passengers were then taken to the terminal for deboarding.
The Transportation Security Administration says the unruly passengers were interviewed by Customs and Border Protection officials.
But the TSA says the passengers were released and no arrests were made.
If four Arabic-speaking air marshals were alarmed by what they heard, I’ll say that’s reason enough to remove those passengers from the plane.
