Who Wudda Thunk It?

."OK, let's agree that you're an airplane. Make the 'zoom zoom' sound again."

So this guy goes nuts on a Continental flight in Fort Lauderdale. As it backs out of the gate 30 minutes late, he jumps up, screaming to be let off the plane. Bangs on the cockpit door, bangs on the windows. Before the pilot depressurizes the plane (can't open the doors against all of that pressure), some passengers jump the dude to calm him down (i.e., put him down). He bites one of them.

The door gets opened, and he jumps down to the tarmac. Runs to the terminal, where he gives security a hard time (natch) and they taser his butt. Down he goes. Arrested for lots of things.

I read this AP article all the way to the end, where they finally tell me the plane was bound for Newark, NJ.

Well, no wonder. Why didn't you say so in the first place?
