Two unruly passengers en route from London to Los Cabos were arrested in Winnipeg Thursday and rather than enjoying a Mexican beach holiday are in jail in Winnipeg.

On Thursday, January 30, 2020, at approximately 11:45 am, Manitoba RCMP officers were advised that a plane from London en route to Los Cabos was being diverted to the James Armstrong Richardson International Airport in Winnipeg due to an unruly passenger.

The plane landed at 12:03 pm and was met by officers at the gate.

Officers boarded the plane and placed a 25-year-old male from the United Kingdom under arrest for causing a disturbance.

He is also facing additional charges of resisting arrest and assaulting a police officer.

He remains in custody.

Shortly after the first arrest, officers were called back to the plane as another passenger, unconnected to the male, was being unruly.

Officers arrested a 34-year-old female, also from the United Kingdom, for causing a disturbance.

She also remains in custody.
