Massachusetts State Police and the FBI reportedly attended Boston Logan International Airport on Saturday morning for a ‘potential foul play’ on a flight from Charlotte, North Carolina to Boston, in Massachusetts.
State police said in a news release that the troopers were made aware by American Airlines of potential foul play that occurred on American Flight 1441 while it was in the skies between Charlotte and Boston.
When the plane landed, it was met by Massachusetts State Police patrols and detectives, who opened an investigation into the incident.

The investigation revealed that the alleged act in question took place mid-flight, although police have not disclosed what happened.
Because the act occurred mid-flight, it falls under federal jurisdiction, and federal authorities have claimed jurisdiction over the matter, according to Massachusetts State Police.
