Teen Pleads Guilty To Plane Ruckus, Faces DUI

ASHLAND, Ore. (AP) — A 19-year-old from Saudi Arabia who caused a ruckus aboard a jetliner in February has been released from jail in Portland, Ore., and is headed to southern Oregon to face charges of drunken driving and ramming two police cars.

The Medford Mail Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/K7eVQS ) Yazeed Mohammed Abunayyan pleaded guilty Monday to interfering with a flight crew. He was sentenced to the time he’s served since Feb. 21, when a Continental flight to Houston returned to Portland because of the disturbance he caused after being asked to stop smoking an electronic cigarette.

In Ashland, two days before the plane incident, a slow-speed police chase resulted in multiple charges against Abunayyan, described by a relative as troubled and on medications.

He was released Friday from the Multnomah County Jail.
