LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) - A psychologist says a JetBlue Airways pilot who screamed about religion and terrorists during a flight had "a brief psychotic disorder" due to lack of sleep.
The psychologist testified during Clayton Osbon's trial in Texas. A court transcript of the testimony was obtained Tuesday by The Associated Press.
The judge presiding over the brief trial July 3 ruled that Osbon was not guilty by reason of insanity for his behavior on a March 27 flight from New York to Las Vegas. He was charged with interference with a flight crew.
Passengers said they wrestled Osbon to the floor after he ran through the plane's cabin yelling about Jesus and al-Qaida. The plane was diverted to Texas.
Osbon is now at a mental health facility for further examination.
