Yet another passenger has tried to open a cockpit door mid-flight.

This time it happened aboard an "Air Wisconsin" flight taking off from Portland.

Airline authorities say passengers had to restrain him from opening the door, and that the flight was diverted from Philadelphia to Boston.

The man was arrested by state police shortly after landing.

He now faces charges of interfering with a flight crew.
