( 4UMF NEWS ) FBI Arrests Passenger:

An American Airlines passenger who allegedly was acting suspiciously was taken into custody Friday when the 757 jetliner landed at Los Angeles International Airport on a flight from Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, officials said.

Flight 2401 arrived at LAX at 7:45 a.m. with 139 passengers aboard, and the man was taken into custody by FBI agents, according to American Airlines spokesman Ed Martelle.

Martelle said the passenger was “acting suspiciously,” but the flight was never in danger. The FBI did not elaborate on the passenger’s behavior.

“At no time did he shout or make threats,” Martelle said. “He had no explosives. He was compliant.”

The man, whose name was withheld, was taken into custody for a mental evaluation, said FBI spokeswoman Laura Eimiller.
