Arizona man denied bond for disrupting Southwest flight

An Arizona man has been denied bond on federal charges of disrupting a commercial airline flight and the case has been turned over to a grand jury.

Edward Uber, 32, of Mesa, Arizona, was headed to Florida to enter a three-year alcohol and drug treatment program at the time of the incident, according to his attorney, Mark Jicka of Jackson.

Uber was making his first appearance in federal court Thursday.

Jicka asked U.S. Magistrate Linda Anderson to set a reasonable bond and allow Uber to attend the treatment program in Florida or one here in Mississippi.
