Aircraft Mechanic Facing Charges in McCarran Incident

LAS VEGAS (AP) — An aircraft mechanic who police say created a disturbance at a Las Vegas airport security checkpoint and referred to planes falling from the sky is facing misdemeanor criminal charges.

Court documents say Neutne Michaelangelo Williamson is due in court Sept. 19 following his arrest June 16 at McCarran International Airport.

Attempts to reach Williamson on Tuesday weren’t immediately successful.

A police report alleges he declared that people’s lives were in his hands and told a police sergeant there was a reason planes “fall out of the sky.”

Police say a Delta Air Lines official refused to grant Williamson a boarding pass and Williamson wouldn’t leave the airport peacefully.

He faces harassment and violation of airport rules charges.

A spokeswoman for his employer, ExpressJet, says the company is investigating the incident.
