A group of passengers on a US Airways, doing their country proud and keeping themselves safe from terrorists, reported a "suspicious package" to the crew of a Boston-to-DC flight on Monday. Apparently, the plastic bag was making weird noises! When the crew confronted bag owner Ognjen Milatovic, the 35-year-old math professor made a phone call. When he refused to hang the phone up, he was cuffed and charged with interfering with the operation of an aircraft. As for his scary bag? it contained a bagel, cream cheese, his keys, a hat, and wallet, notes NBC Miami. (More bagel stories.)
