A JetBlue captain who acted erratically and had to be restrained onboard a Las Vegas-bound flight from New York was charged Wednesday with interfering with the crew and has been suspended.
The captain of Flight 191, 49-year-old Clayton Osbon, seen above, was caught on video yelling about a bomb.
A newly released court document says Osbon was still in the cockpit when he rambled about religion, turned off radio controls and dimmed monitors.
He allegedly told the co-pilot to take a leap of faith and then stormed out of the cockpit.
The co-pilot used the public address system to urge passengers to restrain the captain.
Four men tackled and subdued him with seat belt extenders and zip tie handcuffs until the plane made an emergency landing in Amarillo, Texas.
By Wednesday night, Osbon was undergoing a medical evaluation at a nearby hospital.
The Federal Aviation Administration, Federal Bureau of Investigation and U.S. Transportation Safety Administration conducted a joint investigation.
