After being told he could not use an electronic cigarette during a Southwest flight on Monday, a passenger began throwing peanuts and pretzels at the flight attendant, according to The Salt Lake Tribune.
Pogos Paul Sefilian of Sandy, Utah, started fighting with the flight attendant on Southwest flight 188 on Monday as it left Los Angeles, heading for Salt Lake City. The article says that Sefilian was using an electronic cigarette after boarding the plane and was informed by a flight attendant he couldn't use it.
He argued with the flight attendant but put the device away. However, he took it back out after take-off and was told again not to use it.
"Later, he threw peanuts and pretzels at the flight attendant and at the flight deck door in an apparent attempt to protest the airline's policy banning electronic cigarettes," the article says.
FBI agents arrested Sefilian once the plane landed. He has been charged with interference with a flight crew.
