HONOLULU (AP) -- Soon after they boarded a flight to Honolulu, Mark and Donna Basden found a laptop computer in a seat pocket in front of them.
The couple assumed someone on a previous flight left it there. But a flight attendant said it probably belonged to a man who was in the bathroom.
A man Donna Basden described as a "disheveled looking fellow" emerged and Mark Basden gave him the laptop. The man scowled, took the laptop and opened it and closed it and then tried to sit in another first class seat, Mark Basden said.
Authorities say that moments later, the man - identified as Anil Uskanli, 25, of Turkey - had created so many problems on American Airlines Flight 31 on Friday from Los Angeles to Honolulu that he had to be immobilized with duct tape in a seat until the plane landed in Honolulu. Uskanli was taken into custody after the plane, escorted by two fighter jets, landed.

The USAF and USN don't scramble their fighters or divert them from training lightly. Rightly or wrongly, they thought something very serious was happening.

The detained passenger's behavior - what little was reported - was certainly very disproportionate to the "offense" of strangers taking his laptop out of a seat-back pocket and showing it to a flight attendant. That suggests there was more to this than a misunderstanding. Also, I wonder whether most/all of the flight attendants were women.
