MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The father of the 9-year-old boy who stowed away on a flight to Las Vegas is now speaking out, as his son is reportedly on his way back to Minnesota.
The father did not want his name or face revealed, because his son is a minor, and according to a CNN source, the boy was being returned “because the jurisdiction where the boy is from is where issues will be addressed.”
“My son is not a terrorist — he’s a 9-year-old,” the father said. “Misunderstood, but a very intelligent young man.”
In a WCCO exclusive, the father said he and his fiancé are not bad parents, and that they’ve been seeking help for their son’s behavior problems for years, behavior problems that have him suspended from school.
