Man denies abusive’ behaviour on BA flight
A Pembroke man this morning denied causing a disruption on a Bermuda-bound flight.
Helder Viera, 54, was charged with “threatening, abusive or insulting” behaviour towards crew members on board a British Airways flight on New Year’s Eve.
He was also charged with wilfully disobeying a command by the aircraft’s crew.
Mr Viera, who was arrested at L.F. Wade International Airport after the flight landed, denied both charges.
Magistrate Khamisi Tokunbo released Mr Viera on $5,000 bail and a like surety.
The matter is expected to return to the courts next week to be mentioned.
