A passenger who said he was from Binghamton created a commotion on a United Airlines flight from Hong Kong to Newark.

Police took the man into custody when the aircraft landed in New Jersey Monday afternoon.

According to CBS News, the man shouted that everyone on the plane was poisoned.

The disruptive passenger also reportedly screamed about national security and the CIA.

Passengers said the man kept pacing the aisles of the plane, while saying his name, age and claiming his hometown was Binghamton, New York.

The man was handcuffed and led off the aircraft. He was taken to a hospital to be evaluated.

Some passengers described the ranting man as appearing to be unstable and “very paranoid.”
