A San Francisco man will be in a Pennsylvania court Wednesday afternoon to face federal charges for attacking crew members on a cross-country flight on Sunday.

Officials say the man was screaming in the bathroom, started to take his clothes off and then fought with flight crew members who tried to get him to sit down. The man says he was high on medical marijuana cookies.

The US Airways flight from Philadelphia to Los Angeles was diverted to Pittsburgh.
