The then 22, Commey, was arraigned in Brooklyn the following day, where he was ordered held without bail on charges of attempted aircraft piracy. Commey was also supposed to have been given a psychiatric evaluation, but nothing more has been heard about him, or of this whole incident since. His father, Samuel Commey, commented that he had not seen his son in four years, and that he may have mental problems. He was raised in New York but had been living in Milwaukee before the incident.
He admitted to the police that he "he had been planning to take over an airplane for several months and he would have used a handgun and knife that he was carrying against anyone who resisted."
The connection of this to the events of September 11th are to be explored.
