Florida Professor Arrested for Having a ‘Suspicious’ Bagel on a Plane

Todd Wright, reporting for NBC Miami:

A Florida professor was arrested and removed from a plane Monday after his fellow passengers alerted crew members they thought he had a suspicious package in the overhead compartment.

That “suspicious package” turned out to be keys, a bagel with cream cheese and a hat. Ognjen Milatovic, 35, was flying from Boston to Washington D.C. on US Airways when he was escorted off the plane for disorderly conduct following the incident.

“Suspicious Bagels” would be a good name for a bagel store. (Thanks to DF reader Collin Bennett.)
