In the American Airlines concourse, American Airlines staff approached an adult male individual after observing his behavior as being suspicious.

"[He] fled from having a conversation with them and ran onto one of the jet ways," Cowart explained.

The jet way was connected to an American Airlines plane and he boarded.

When the man ran away from American Airlines staff, they contacted the Miami-Dade Police Department for assistance.

"Officers responded," said Cowart. "They removed adult male from the airplane and deemed him to be in crisis."

After determining he was in crisis, they proceeded to take him to a facility to be checked out under the Baker Act.

The law is different in different states, Cowart said.

In Florida, when someone is deemed to be in a crisis and could pose a threat to themselves or to others, they can be forcibly taken into custody.
