I think this might be the asshole who sat behind me and Kate on our return flight from Philadelphia New Year's Eve:
    Channel 5 has learned that a Northwest Airlines passenger was taken off a plane headed to Philadelphia.

    It happened at around 11 a.m. today on board Flight 684 at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport.

    Another passenger on that flight told Channel 5 the man appeared drunk and unruly and refused to comply with the flight crew. The flight was delayed while airport police escorted the passenger and his bag away from the plane.

    "The captain brought the plane back into the gate and the man was removed from the plane with his baggage and the captain announced over intercom they don't tolerate that type of behavior," said passenger Kevin Wollin.

    Hennepin County officials were going to take the passenger to detox, but authorities said he passed out and was taken instead to a local hospital by ambulance.

    The passenger was described as in his mid 40s.

    Northwest Airlines officials said the flight was delayed 50 minutes
