Flight arrest actor is cautioned
An actor who played a hijacker in the Hollywood film Passenger 57 has been cautioned for using threatening behaviour on a flight from the US.

British actor Bruce Payne was arrested at Heathrow Airport after disembarking a flight from Los Angeles in November.

The 47-year-old was later cautioned for using "threatening behaviour" and will face no further action.

Mr Payne starred opposite Wesley Snipes in the 1992 film Passenger 57. His TV credits include Spooks and Charmed.

A police spokesman said: "Officers boarded an inbound Virgin Atlantic flight from Los Angeles to Heathrow after the captain radioed ahead regarding the behaviour of a passenger.

"The 47-year-old man was arrested and bailed pending further inquiries."

On Thursday, Mr Payne appeared at a police station in London where he accepted an official caution, the spokesman added.
