Air Canada plane diverted after man steals beer
KELOWNA, B.C. - Police took a man off an Air Canada Jazz flight in Kelowna, B.C., on Tuesday after a disturbance on the flight from Vancouver to Fort McMurray, Alberta forced the pilot to make an unscheduled stop.
Police say the man stole some beer from the beverage cart on the plane and tried to hide the evidence by flushing the empty can down the toilet.
Airport Communications Officer Jenelle Turpin says the pilot made the decision to land in Kelowna and call in the Mounties.
When the plane landed the RCMP took one man away in handcuffs, while questioning two others before releasing them.
The plane then continued on its flight.
