Drunken honeymooner causes emergency landing

A Delta flight was forced to make an unscheduled landing in Grand Cayman Sunday night (9 March), after an argument involving a honeymooning couple turned rowdy.

In an email to Cayman 27 News, RCIPS Chief Inspector Raymond Christian confirmed “an intoxicated passenger aboard a Delta airlines flight bound to Costa Rica from Miami, Florida caused its captain to make an emergency landing at Owens Roberts International Airport tonight. The flight continued on to its destination following its delay.”

He added the 33-year-old male from the United States was on honeymoon with his wife.

“He and his wife had an argument which turned rowdy. His wife continued on the flight. He was arrested for being drunk and disorderly, and he is in custody pending further inquires,” Chief Inspector Christian said.
