The Federal Aviation Admission is cracking down on unruly passengers on U.S. flights.

It says there have been more than 500 reports of misbehaving passengers since December.

Now the FAA will be extending strict enforcement against those who don't follow COVID-related mask policies.

It is also encouraging agency officials to consider both civil and criminal charges including fines and jail time.
