Man at center of plane hoax arrest on outstanding warrants

The man at the center of a plane threat hoax is facing legal trouble.

A 29-year-old man was pulled off a US Airways flight at gunpoint because police thought he called in a threat. But he was just a victim of a hoax.

Police say that Christopher Shell's ex-girlfriend called in the threat seeking revenge against him.

However, Shell was arrested on outstanding warrants.
