Man Jailed For Pelting Flight Attendant With Snacks


Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep.

After a plane takes off, the flight crew says you may use electronic devices. Maybe now they'll have to clarify that they mean things like music players, not the new electronic cigarettes.

He was arrested after landing, but at least the crew did not tell him during the flight that the smoking area was right outside the door.
