TULSA, Okla. (AP) — Investigators say a man whose screaming and threats aboard a Delta Air Lines flight that prompted an emergency landing in Oklahoma has been charged.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Tulsa says 29-year-old Bolutife Olorunda of Vancouver, Washington, was charged Thursday with interference with flight crew members and attendants.

Court records don’t list a defense attorney. He’s scheduled to appear in court later Thursday.

The FBI alleges Olorunda was loudly singing and screaming Wednesday during a flight from Portland, Oregon, to Atlanta. The FBI says he ignored and threatened a flight attendant who tried to quiet him.

The pilot declared an emergency and diverted to Tulsa as two U.S. air marshals controlled Olorunda on the plane.
