SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- An Ohio man has been found NOT guilty by reason of insanity of disrupting a flight that landed in Salt Lake City last January.
Federal judge Tena Campbell will now have to determine the level of danger Caleb Parker of Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, poses to the community.
The U-S Attorney's office says Parker could face an involuntary commitment or some lesser mental health treatment when he next appears in court in July.
The 28-year-old Parker was charged with a single count of interference with flight crew members and attendants. On New Year's Day, the 28-year-old Parker allegedly locked himself inside an airline bathroom. He reportedly tried to open an exterior door and beat on the cockpit door, screaming at the crew.
