A mechanic under contract with Delta Airlines is facing charges for an outburst at McCarran International Airport.
Police say Neutne Williamson was waiting to go through security last week when he started making threats against aircraft and saying things like, "When you take your next vacation, who do you think fixes your plane? People's lives are in my hands."
There is no word on a possible reason why he said these things.
Williamson is being charged with four counts of intimidating a public officer.
