ATLANTA (CBSMiami) —  Spirit Airlines flight 404 had just arrived to Atlanta from Fort Lauderdale Hollywood  International Airport when one of their passengers had a bizarre outburst Friday.

According to Atlanta police, the pilot said the man had been disruptive during the entire hour-and-a-half flight. He allegedly started throwing things at other passengers and had verbal outbursts.

A passenger on the same flight posted a video of the incident on YouTube under the username “zjazzmanz.”

Officers boarded the plane once it landed in Atlanta and asked the man to exit the aircraft but he refused and became “erratic.” He started telling the officers they were “enemy agents”and began shouting that he was going to blow the plane up.

“There’s a bomb on the plane! There’s a bomb on this f*****g plane! If she takes me off I will blow the f*****g plane up!” he’s heard screaming in the video.

According to police, officers had to restrain the man and take him off the plane.

He was taken to a hospital for medical evaluation.

No bomb was found on the plane.

Charges are pending, according to police.
