A passenger on a flight from Los Angeles International Airport was arrested, accused of throwing peanuts and pretzels at a flight attendant.

Authorities say Pogos Paul Sefilian was on a Southwest Flight from LAX to Salt Lake City Monday night when he tried to smoke an electronic cigarette.

According to a complaint filed in federal court, the flight attendant repeatedly asked him to put away the device, saying it was against airline policy.

Authorities say he got mad and threw the snacks at the flight attendant. He faces a federal charge of interference with a flight crew.
