    A Hawaiian Airlines Boeing 767-300 plane is serviced at the Honolulu Airport.

The FBI and state sheriffs arrested a 35-year-old man who allegedly bit a flight attendant on a Hawaiian Airlines flight from Pago Pago in American Samoa to Honolulu overnight.

An FBI spokesman said the man, identified as Togia Aumoeualogo, of American Samoa, is in custody pending a court appearance at 9:30 a.m. Wednesday.

Aumoeualogo is accused of interfering with a flight crew, a federal crime with a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison.

He allegedly became belligerent on the overnight flight, bit a flight attendant and threatened the flight crew, the FBI said.

Hawaiian Airlines flight 466 left Pago Pago at about 11:30 p.m. local time.

Aumoeualogo was arrested when the plane landed in Honolulu at about 5:30 a.m.
