Snakes on a Plane II: The Bagel Connection

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

You've seen "Snakes on a Plane"? The Sequel, "Bagels on a Plane" is coming soon to a theater near you!

Passengers claimed man had suspicious package in the overhead compartment. A Florida professor was arrested and removed from a plane Monday after his fellow passengers alerted crew members they thought he had a suspicious package in the overhead compartment.

That "suspicious package" turned out to be keys, a bagel with cream cheese and a hat.

Ognjen Milatovic, 35, was flying from Boston to Washington D.C. on US Airways when he was escorted off the plane for disorderly conduct following the incident.

"Can't I just finish my waffles?" came the man's plaintive cry! No, wait! That was that other guy!

Passengers reported hearing strange noises coming from a plastic bag. State police said later that the bag contained a set of keys, a bagel with cream cheese, some other small food items, a hat and a wallet.

When confronted by the US Airways crew about his "suspicious package," Milatovic got on his cell phone. The crew asked him to hang it up and sit down. When he refused, he was cuffed.

Milatovic was also charged with interfering with the operation of an aircraft.

He probably just forgot to turn off his cell phone and tried to answer it. He should have complied with the crew, though, when asked to turn it off. For this, he probably gets what he deserved.

Too bad he wasn't flying out of LOX! (Little LAX humor for you on the Left Coast!)

  1. Maybe the fact that the passengers have little to no confidence in the government to keep them safe on the plane makes them jumpier than usual?
