Man Dies After Freaking Out on Plane

Sorry, guys, can't be snarky about this one...

A reportedly mentally ill Florida man was shot by air marshals yesterday at Miami International Airport after he freaked out on a plane and claimed to have a bomb in his carry on luggage.

Rigoberto Alpizar was reaching for the bag when he was shot. No explosives were found in the bag or on the plane after the incident.

Condolences to the man's family and the air marshals involved. (Yes, the air marshals. I wouldn't want to be where they are right now....wishing that they would have been able to tell that there wasn't a bomb.)

No one else was harmed in the incident.

    There must be something in the air on that flight. Remember when I came through O-town to visit you and a few other friends on my way back to the desert from Miami...
    Same bat flight number, same bat airline, same bat time...

    Yeah, and when I looked up airfares for that possible winery tour featuring the lovely and talented Blake, that flight came up as part of one of the options.

    Uh, no. Double no, thanks!
