The JetBlue pilot who screamed false terrorism warnings to a cabin full of passengers last week was released from a Texas hospital today, although released may be too strong a word. Clayton Osbon was escorted to court in handcuffs, where prosecutors asked that he be held without bail, the AP reports. Osbon smiled at his wife, who was present at the hearing. He was not asked to enter a plea at this time. The judge will decide on Osbon's bail on Thursday, but in the meantime, he'll be held at Randall County Jail, according to KFDA 10.
