A PASSENGER has landed in trouble for pelting a flight attendant with snack food such as peanuts and pretzels.
Pogos Paul Sefilian was arrested and faces a charge of interfering with flight crew over the incident.
Sefilian was on a Southwest Airlines flight on Monday night when he attempted to smoke an electronic cigarette.
According to a complaint filed in a US court, a flight attendant repeatedly told him it was against airline policy and to put away the device.
Authorities said Sefilian became enraged and threw peanuts and pretzels at the flight attendant. He also target the cockpit door with his snack barrage, according to the Salt Lake Tribune.
The complaint alleges the passenger committed a final act of unruliness by jumping out of his seat and opening overhead storage bins as the flight began to approach Salt Lake City.
His lawyer has declined to comment.
