Two passengers who wanted off a airplane that sat on the tarmac at Oakland Airport for four hours got their wish. Officials say two upset passengers were arrested and turned over to the FBI on suspicion of interfering with an aircraft yesterday afternoon. Authorities say they became unruly after waiting for four hours on the tarmac at Oakland after their flight was diverted from San Francisco airport because of fog. They have since been released. A third person on the flight was taken to the hospital with difficulty breathing.
