American Airlines passenger touched people’s faces, sprayed them with liquid, then jumped out of the plane

An American Airlines passenger was arrested on Friday after a strange outburst on a flight to Phoenix.


In a peculiar turn of events, a man on an early Friday morning American Airlines flight touched the faces of fellow passengers and sprayed them with an unknown substance.


The incident occurred as the plane was nearing the end of the Minneapolis to Phoenix flight.


After the aircraft touched down, the man was brought to the front of the plane to disembark before other passengers.


However, before the main door opened, the 25-year-old man opened the service door on the other side of the plane, jumping 10ft onto the tarmac.


The unidentified man was taken to a local hospital to treat his injuries before being detained by police.


It is still unclear what was in the spray bottle.


None of the passengers on board wished to press charges against the unruly man, however, trespassing charges are pending from the prosecutor’s office.
