Sun Sentinel on May 25, 2012 released the following:

“By Erika Pesantes, Sun Sentinel

An unruly passenger was taken into federal custody following his attempt to rush toward the cockpit of an American Airlines plane after landing at Miami International Airport Friday, the FBI said.

Ryan Snider, 24, of Canada, was arrested after the incident aboard American Airlines flight 320 originating from Montego Bay, Jamaica.

He is not believed to be connected to terrorists and was not on the “no fly list,” the FBI said.

Passenger Malik Cann, who said he was a trained security officer from Bermuda, told WSVN-Ch.7 that he helped restrain Snider.

“I gripped him straight by his arm,” Cann said, “We didn’t allow him to harm anyone. He was screaming, ‘Get me off the plane! Get me off the plane!'”

Snider is facing federal charges including interference with a flight crew. His first appearance in federal court is Tuesday, the FBI said.”
