Man Arrested After Flight Forced To Return To Perth Airport

A man has been arrested after causing a disturbance on a flight from Perth to Brisbane and faces four charges.

A Qantas spokeswoman said the man, 38, repeatedly failed to follow crew instructions on the overnight flight, prompting the pilot to return QF652 to Perth after about an hour in the air.

The man was arrested by Australian Federal Police on arrival and the flight was delayed by about three hours, arriving in Brisbane at 8.30am on Wednesday.

An AFP spokeswoman said the man was expected to face charges including assaulting aircrew, harming a Commonwealth officer and obstructing police.
