(Newser) – An apparently intoxicated Delta airlines passenger who pounded on the door of the pilot's cabin was detained yesterday by police when the plane landed in Salt Lake City. It was the third security scare in three days on US flights. None of the 164 passengers was harmed by the unruly passenger, though he is being questioned by officials, reports AP.
