NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Authorities say several airline passengers rushed to subdue a man who held a sharp object to a flight attendant’s neck shortly after landing in New Orleans, keeping him immobile until deputies could take him into custody. The violent outburst happened Wednesday after a Delta flight from Atlanta landed. The Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office says the man cut himself in the neck and then caused two superficial cuts to a flight attendant before he was subdued. Nelson Montgomery, 39, of New Orleans, faces charges of aggravated battery, simple battery and disturbing the peace. Delta says it has zero tolerance for unruly behavior on its planes.
