    A passenger headed to Detroit from Amsterdam on a Delta Airlines flight Friday ignited firecrackers upon landing in the Motor City, causing minor injuries to others on the plane, Fox News reported.

    An emergency was declared aboard the flight, operated as Northwest flight 253, according to a Federal Aviation Administration spokesperson.

    All 278 passengers on the Airbus A330 wide-body jet have since deplaned, Delta spokesperson Susan Elliott said. The FBI was on the scene.

    It was not immediately clear if the suspect was subdued by crew or passengers.

    I am sure this guy is looking at a laundry list of charges, to bad stupidity isn't a criminal offense.

    I am sure there were a lot of terrified people on that plane, and technically this guy could and SHOULD be charged with an act of terrorism, since I am sure he made some of the passengers feel terrorized.

    Perhaps he was testing the security to draw attention to the shortcomings?

    Doubtful, either way I hope they prosecute him to the max and charge him with everything they can.

    Just like me with a Shoplifter I always try to get them on Petty Larceny, Burglary, Robbery (If they fight at all when you attempt to arrest them), Battery, Assault, Threats, Disturbing the Peace, Disorderly Conduct, Drunk in Public(if they are already intoxicated when we stop them), Tresspassing, Possession of Burglary Tools, Grand Larceny and if they are under 21 and stealing liquor, Minor in Posession. Reason being the DA will plead it down anyways but the more charges the less they plea. You can get several theft related charges on one theft. I have gotten Petty Larceny, Burglary, Grand Larceny, Robbery, Battery and Minor in Posession all on one theft incident.

    AP source: Passenger tried to blow up airliner

    By LARA JAKES
    Associated Press Writer

    A senior U.S. counterterror official says a passenger aboard a Delta Air Lines flight in Detroit was planning to blow up the plane but the explosive device failed.

    The official said the passenger was being questioned Friday evening. It was not immediately clear why the passenger wanted to attack the flight that was arriving from Amsterdam.
