A passenger on a D.C.-bound flight departing from Boston has been released on his own recognizance after being arrested Monday. Passengers reported that he had placed a suspicious package in the overhead bin.
Police say 35-year-old Ognjen Milatovic refused the crew's request to hang up his cell phone and sit down on his U.S. Airways flight. And passengers reported hearing strange noises coming from a plastic bag.
Milatovic was removed from the flight, but police said later his carry-on did not contain anything dangerous.
Milatovic is a mathematics and statistics professor at the University of North Florida.
He was arraigned on charges of disorderly conduct and interfering with operation of an aircraft. His lawyer did not immediately return a request for comment.
