Man and Woman Cause Flight To Return Back to Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport
Police say a couple who disrupted a Delta Air Lines flight to Los Angeles, forcing it to return to Minneapolis, have been ticketed and released.
Police reports show 35-year-old Blake Adam Fleisig, of Los Angeles, and 36-year-old Anna Christine Koosmann, of Edina, Minnesota, were ticketed for disorderly conduct after Wednesday evening’s incident. Jail records show Koosmann was also ticketed for obstructing police, and had to post bail.
Airport spokesman Patrick Hogan says the flight took off at 6:20 p.m. Wednesday but returned to Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport at 7:35 p.m. Hogan says the flight crew reported the couple were disruptive and wouldn’t follow instructions.
