BOSTON (AP) - A New York man has been arrested at Boston's Logan International Airport after allegedly slapping a male flight attendant on a JetBlue flight from Florida.

Massachusetts State Police say 48-year-old Bryan Garnett, of Utica, N.Y., was taken into custody Tuesday when the flight from West Palm Beach landed about 10:30 a.m.

Garnett is scheduled to be arraigned Tuesday in East Boston District Court on charges of interfering with a flight crew and assault and battery.

The Boston Globe reports that one of its reporters was on the plane. The reporter says a flight attendant asked Garnett to put his bag beneath the seat before the plane took off, but there was no obvious commotion during the flight.

A message was left Tuesday at a telephone listing for Garnett.
