AMARILLO, Texas (AP) - A federal judge in Texas says a JetBlue Airways pilot who disrupted a flight by running through the plane and yelling about terrorists can go free.
The ruling Friday in Amarillo comes months after Clayton Osbon was found not guilty by reason of insanity for his behavior on a March 27 flight from New York to Las Vegas. Osbon had been charged with interference with a flight crew.
A neuropsychologist testified at the bench trial in July that Osbon had a "brief psychotic disorder" brought on by lack of sleep. In August Osbon had another psychotic episode while in prison for a mental evaluation, which was ordered by U.S. District Judge Mary Lou Robinson.
Robinson extended the evaluation before issuing her latest ruling.
