The Associated Press - July 11, 2018 9:21 am

TULSA, Okla. (AP) – A Washington state man accused of screaming on a flight and causing the pilot to make an emergency landing in Oklahoma has pleaded guilty to a federal assault charge. Federal prosecutors in Tulsa say Bolutife Olorunda of Vancouver, Washington, pleaded guilty Tuesday and will pay Delta Airlines $9,118 for the cost of diverting the aircraft. Prosecutors say Olorunda verbally assaulted a flight attendant on a May flight from Portland, Oregon, to Atlanta, prompting the pilot to land in Tulsa.
