Prior to 6 p.m. last evening, Halifax District RCMP responded to a complaint involving unruly passengers on a flight destined to Cuba from Germany.
The plane was diverted to Halifax Stanfield International Airport after three intoxicated males were reportedly causing a disturbance.
RCMP, Halifax Regional Police and the Canada Border Services Agency boarded the plane where the three men were arrested without incident. The men, 53-years-old, 47-years-old, and 26-years-old, all from Germany, are facing charges under the Aeronautics Act for Prohibition – unruly or dangerous behaviour.
They were held in custody and are scheduled to appear in Dartmouth Provincial Court today.
The investigation is continuing.
