RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — The corruption case that could send former Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell and his wife to federal prison was in the hands Tuesday of jurors who must decide whether the couple sold the influence of the office to a wealthy vitamin executive seeking legitimacy for his company's signature product.
A 32-year-old woman trying to snooze on a tray table on a flight from New York to West Palm Beach, Florida became the latest offender Monday when the woman in front slammed her seat back, bashing her alleged victim's head at the end of the Labor Day holiday weekend. The woman allegedly struck became loud and verbally abusive, and when cabin crew tried to calm her down she got worse, forcing the pilot to divert Delta Air Lines flight 2370 to Jacksonville, northern Florida. Delta Airlines told AFP that flight 2370 was re-routed "out of an abundance of caution" due to a passenger disruption, and continued onto West Palm Beach after the passenger was ejected. On Thursday, a Frenchman was arraigned in Boston after becoming disruptive when the passenger in front of him reclined their seat on American Airlines flight 62 from Miami to Paris.
