PITTSBURGH (AP) An unruly passenger who caused a New York-bound flight to be diverted to Pittsburgh has been jailed on a federal charge of interfering with a flight crew.

Forty-year-old Steven Pectol, of Mapleton, Utah, faces a hearing Friday before a federal magistrate in Pittsburgh to determine whether he'll remain jailed until he can stand trial. A criminal complaint was filed Wednesday.

Authorities say Pectol was on a US Airways from Phoenix to New York on Oct. 11 when he began throwing his belongings, talking to himself and heading toward the cabin door. Federal air marshals say passengers subdued Pectol until a flight attendant could handcuff him and restrain his legs with a seat belt.

Online court records don't list an attorney for Pectol.
