A Dana Point man suspected of being drunk and unruly on a Jet Blue airline flight from Boston was arrested by Long Beach Airport police Thursday night, Long Beach Police Department (LBPD) officials said.

Christopher Kwok, 21, was detained by the flight crew, with the assistance of a passenger, while on the plane, LBPD spokeswoman Nancy Pratt said.

Airport police received a call about an intoxicated man about 9:00PM Thursday. When the plane landed they took him into custody and charged him with public intoxication, she said.

No threats were made and airport operations continued as usual, according to authorities. 

Kwok is being held at the Long Beach City Jail on $250 bail.
