Man sprayed passengers jumped from grounded plane at Phoenix airport

According to a report in The Arizona Republic, the incident took place on flight 1346, which landed at 6:12 a.m. local time at Sky Harbor International Airport, Arizona.

The man was brought to the front of the plane after landing to disembark first because of some unusual behaviors that he was exhibiting, such as touching other passengers' faces and spraying a spray bottle on them.

It was a odd episode on American Airlines flight 1346 Friday as a 25-year-old man touched the faces of other passengers and sprayed them with an unknown substance before jumping off the grounded plane in Phoenix, Arizona, police said in a press release. He was randomly touching the faces of other passengers and spraying them with an unknown substance from a bottle.

Passengers on the plane declined to press charges against the man; however, he could still face trespassing charges for his jump onto the tarmac.

The man was brought to the front of the plane to get off before the other passengers. Once the flight arrived at the gate, the passenger opened one of doors and jumped off the aircraft.

"It is unknown what was in the bottle", police said in a media advisory obtained by Fox News.

She said flight attendants tried to calm him down and even offered to move him but the man tried to stand up just before the flight was to land.

"Once stopped, he tried to make a run for it, hitting various passengers, including me", Johnson told the Republic.

Both law enforcement and paramedics responded, American Airlines said in a statement to CNN.
