Nigerian Man Detained in Second Airplane Incident at Detroit Airport - Video 12/27/09

Here is local news video reporting a second incident involving a Nigerian national being "detained" by police at the Detroit Metro Airport after he was reported for being "unruly" during the flight from Amsterdam to Detroit. Reports indicate the man barricaded himself in the plane's bathroom for an hour, and had boarded the plane with no luggage.

Police have arrested a Nigerian man who reportedly became verbally disruptive and barricaded himself in the bathroom of a Detroit-bound Northwest Airlines flight on Sunday.

Several police vehicles and a police command unit have surrounded a plane at Detroit's Metro Airport, after the pilot of a Detroit-bound Northwest Airlines flight requested emergency help.

Two sources tell Fox News that the suspect boarded a plan in Lagos with no baggage, and said the FBI has already sent an email alert to other federal agencies notifying them of the incident.

The source said the man taken into custody at the Detroit airport was a Nigerian man in his 30s. Federal officials know who the suspect is, but won't provide any more details. He allegedly barricaded himself in the plane's bathroom for an hour.

There are some reports suggesting that the Nigerian man may have just been a sick passenger.

Detroit's Metro Airport spokesman John Witner said there was a report of suspicious activity on the Delta/Northwest flight 253 from Amsterdam Sunday. That is the same flight number as the flight that Nigerian man Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab was suspected of attempting to blow up over Detroit on Christmas Day.

Feds are trying to determine whether there is any connection with Abdulmutallab, who was arrested on Christmas. . . . MORE

False alarm, apparently. Just a sick passnger with an unfortunate set of coincidences. A "non-event" according to officials, per Faux Noise.
