An at­tor­ney says a Cana­dian man took co­caine be­fore board­ing a flight where he al­legedly at­tacked the crew with cof­fee pots and tried to open a cabin door. The Orlando Sen­tinel re­ports that 34-year-old Bran­don Michael Cour­neyea ap­peared Mon­day in Orlando fed­eral court. He has been charged with in­ter­fer­ing with flight crew mem­bers and at­ten­dants af­ter his May 15 flight from Ja­maica to Canada was di­verted to Orlando. De­fence at­tor­ney Corey Co­hen has asked the judge to re­lease Cour­neyea into his fa­ther’s cus­tody so they can re­turn home to Kingston, Ont.
