The Royal Newfoundland Constabulary says officers were called to St. John’s International Airport today because of an alleged unruly passenger.
Const. Talia Murphy says Air Canada Flight 698 from Toronto landed at the airport around 3:30 a.m.
Murphy says a 33-year-old man from Newfoundland was allegedly intoxicated and police assistance was requested.
She says Air Canada is also investigating whether the man was smoking on board the plane.
The man was detained by police and denied boarding to a connecting flight to Deer Lake, N.L., but no charges have been laid.
