The JetBlue pilot who had a meltdown in mid-air has been indicted. Clayton Osbon was indicted on one count of interference with a flight crew.
A judge wants to know if Clayton Osbon is mentally fit to stand trial. The motion seeking the psychiatric exam states that events enumerated in a FBI affidavit “establish a likelihood that Osbon may be suffering from a mental disease or defect.”
“We know you were placed in an awful situation and we appreciate your ability to respond professionally,” wrote Connye Osbon.
Federal officials charged pilot Clayton Osbon with interfering with a flight crew on Wednesday.
Co-pilot Jason Dowd, an Ohio native, was identified Thursday for the first time since Tuesday’s meltdown by pilot Clayton Osbon on the flight from John F. Kennedy International Airport to Las Vegas.
