ANCHORAGE (KTUU) - Troopers say that they got a report of a man who apparently unbuckled his seatbelt and opened the plane's rear cargo door in an incident on Tuesday.

The report came from the air carrier, Ryan Air. Troopers reported that other passengers were able to restrain the man, Calvin Chase, age 40, of Anvik, until the pilot could return to Aniak for an emergency landing.

Chase was arrested and transported to Bethel, where he has remained on the charges of Criminal Mischief in the Second Degree and Assault in the Third Degree.
