A passenger on a flight Wednesday, reportedly locked himself in a cockpit, shoving past crewmembers.
The suspect, Andrew Alessi, shoved himself past crewmembers from American Eagle Wednesday and ran down the jet way to the plane about a half hour before boarding.
Jim Caldwell the Baton Rouge Metropolitan Airport spokesman said according to The Huffington Post, "He stayed there for several hours while police and FBI negotiated with him. He eventually came out voluntarily."
No passengers were ever in danger, they were in the process of clearing the plane and doing the final walk through when Alessi pushed past the gate attendant who was at the gate. Alessi locked himself in the cockpit which is extremely difficult to get inside once it is locked from the inside.
The plane was then immobilized and the power shut off.
Alessi had purchased his ticket at the airport before boarding and just had a piece of carry on luggage. The flight ws on its way to Dallas Fort Worth but was canceled because of the mishap.
Spokesman Kyle Hanrahan said according to the Huffington Post that the man will most likely be charged with interference of a flight crew. "I think he was distraught. I don't know specifically why he did what he did," Hanrahan added to The Huffington Post.
Currently Alessi is in custody and will be booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison.
Alessi has not made any comment as to what his actions were.
