AMARILLO - Federal authorities have charged a JetBlue Airways captain who sprinted down the cabin screaming about a bomb, with interfering with a flight crew.

An affidavit states Captain Clayton Osbon told his co-pilots that "things don't matter" during a Las Vegas bound flight yesterday. Osbon reportedly told the plane's first officer that "we're not going to Vegas" and began a sermon.

Passengers wrestled Osbon to the ground after he left the cockpit sprinted down the cabit screaming and urged everyone to pray.

The plane made an emergency landing in Amarillo, Texas. No one was hurt. The 49-year-old veteran pilot is being held at a medical facility in Texas.
