Passengers on a plane traveling from Hong Kong to Newark were in for quite the unpleasant surprise when a fellow traveler began spreading the news that he'd poisoned everyone on board.

The passenger was snatched off of United Airlines Flight 116 by police when it landed at Newark Liberty Airport around 1:35 p.m., after officials decided against rerouting the plane to Canada or the northeastern U.S. So far, there are no reports that anyone was actually poisoned.

According to CBS, the man was wearing a blue hooded sweatshirt and appears to have been emotionally disturbed.
