Marine charged in cabbie assault released from jail, runs from reporters

Wednesday, September 26th, 2012

ONSLOW COUNTY, NC (WWAY) — A Marine charged with attacking a Surf City cab driver earlier this month could is out of jail.

Adam Kinosh appeared in Onslow County Court today for charges related to the September 10 attack. The Onslow County Sheriff’s Office says a judge increased Kinosh’s bond to $50,000 and said he could only be released to his military command at Camp Lejeune, which happened this afternoon.

Kinosh did not want to talk about what happened and ran from reporters as he left.

Investigators said Kinosh checked himself into the Oaks mental facility in Wilmington hours after he allegedly attacked cab driver Charles Hawkesworth. The attack, which was caught on a security camera in the taxi, stemmed from Kinosh getting upset when Hawkesworth went to get another passenger to split the fare.

Hawkesworth had to undergo surgery to repair extensive damage to his face.

Attendants tiff causes United flight to return

Wednesday, September 26th, 2012

MORRISVILLE, NC (AP) — An airport official says a squabble between two flight attendants forced a United Airlines flight bound for Chicago to return to Raleigh-Durham International Airport.

Airport spokeswoman Mindy Hamlin says Flight 1214 left Raleigh at 6 a.m. Wednesday. She says a call from the pilot to the tower at 6:40 a.m. suggested there had been an assault onboard, but it turned out to be a tiff between flight attendants.

Raleigh-Durham police determined that no blows were exchanged and no one was arrested.

United spokeswoman Christen David says the two employees were removed and the flight re-staffed. David said the Chicago-based airline is conducting an internal review and that the argument was not physical.

Some passengers were placed on other flights, and David said United would compensate passengers for their inconvenience.
