A passenger aboard a United Airlines flight to Newark allegedly threatened to have poisoned other travelers on the flight on Monday (June 17).

The flight from Hong Kong landed safely and the passenger is now in police custody. It is not yet clear if there is any truth to the passenger's claim that any people on the flight were poisoned.

He was reportedly restrained by other passengers on board and the crew decided to continue on to Newark.

Local reports say the man appeared to be mentally disturbed and was taken to nearby University Hospital for a psychiatric evaluation.
