Suspect Arrested Following Incident at Miami National Airport

FBI Miami May 25, 2012
  • Special Agent Michael D. Leverock (754) 703-2000

The FBI announces the arrest of Ryan Snider, 24, of Canada, in connection with an incident on American Airlines flight 320 inbound to Miami International Airport (MIA) today in which Snider allegedly rushed toward the front of the plane after it had landed.

There were no injuries or damage to the plane. There appears to be no nexus to terrorism and Snider was not on the “No-Fly” list.

Snider is in federal custody and is expected to face federal charges, which may include interference with a flight crew. It is anticipated that his initial appearance will be Tuesday in federal court in Miami, Florida.

The FBI, ICE, ATF, FAMS, U.S. Border Patrol, and Miami Dade PD continue their investigation. No further information will be released at this time.
