BOSTON (AP) -- A former Worcester man faces charges after he allegedly placed a sticker claiming Sept. 11 was an "inside job" in an airplane bathroom, then ran off the plane at Logan International Airport.

Twenty-six-year-old Jason Robo was arraigned Thursday on charges of disorderly conduct and interfering with aircraft operation.

A flight attendant on the Delta flight to Salt Lake City on Wednesday found homemade stickers that read "9/11 was an Inside Job!" on a bathroom sink and on the tray table for Robo's seat. The plane was evacuated, and takeoff was delayed for three hours.

Robo was released on his own recognizance and ordered to return to court Aug. 19. He told police the stickers were a joke.

Robo is a student at Humboldt State University in California.
