Snakes On A Plane, Not

JetBlue flight diverted after fight breaks out

(CNN) -- A JetBlue flight from Boston, Massachusetts, to Fort Lauderdale, Florida, was diverted Saturday when a fight broke out after someone was smoking in the bathroom, federal officials said.

One passenger aboard JetBlue Flight 455 was taken into custody at Raleigh-Durham International Airport in North Carolina after the plane landed about 5:45 p.m.

A federal Transportation Security Administration spokeswoman said one person was injured in the face by what may have been a punch. She said the fight involved three people who are thought to be related.

According to the airline, there were 88 people and four crew members aboard the jet. The flight had been scheduled to leave Boston at 1 p.m. but did not take off until 3:11 p.m., spokeswoman Alison Eshelman said.

Eyewitnesses said the scuffle was between two brothers, one of whom was angry that his brother had smoked on a plane.

One passenger interviewed by CNN affiliate WFOR said the fight left one of the men bloody.

"I saw the guy holding his head with the blood coming out," Mike Rocha said.

The jet was held at the North Carolina airport for about two hours while FBI investigators interviewed passengers. "LINK"

Lets see if we can figure this one out, you've got a plane, that for whatever reason is over 2 hours late taking off and I would imagine that the flight attendants started rolling the beverage cart up and down the isle. It wouldn't surprise me if the fabulous Baker Boys partook in some adult beverages. Then as we all know with drinking at some point you gotta go to the bathroom and what better time for a smoke then while you are in the bathroom. A jolly good time till your brother starts banging his fists off of your melon.
I bet Mom is proud of her little darlings.

I wonder if they still allowed smoking on planes if this would've happened?
