WASHINGTON — And now for the latest from the once friendly skies.

Authorities say a Virginia man who forced an Atlanta to San Francisco AirTran flight to divert to Colorado on Jan. 8 got angry after flight attendants cut him off from having more alcohol, according to Denver tv station KDVR. He had downed 5 airplane sized wines.

Federal prosecutors say Muhammad Abu Tahir, 47, eventually locked himself in the bathroom and took off some of his clothes and at one point  placed his shoes and socks outside, the station reported, the station reported.

At another point he opened the lavatory door, revealing that he was shaving with no shirt, the tv station reported, referring to the arrest affidavit. As a precaution, flight attendants strategically placed beverage carts to prevent the man from reaching the cockpit.

Two military F-16s escorted the plane to Colorado Springs Airport while Tahir remained in the bathroom, the station reported.  The  FBI then arrested him.
