BOSTON (AP) - Massachusetts State Police say they are holding three men who were allegedly intoxicated and acting unruly on a flight from Ireland to Boston.
Police spokesman David Procopio said the flight crew called police before landing Tuesday to report three unruly passengers. When the Aer Lingus flight arrived at Logan International Airport around 1 p.m., troopers took the three men into protective custody.
A spokeswoman for the Irish airline said the men were "causing disruption" on Aer Lingus flight 135 but that there were never any safety issues.
Officials didn't release the men's identities or say how they were misbehaving. Police said the men were Irish and were on the flight together.
Procopio said the men won't be criminally charged but are being held in custody until they are no longer intoxicated.
