Amarillo, TX - Charges have just been filed against the pilot who forced a airplane to make an emergency landing in Amarillo Tuesday.

A criminal complaint was just filed in the United States District Court for a charge of interfering with a flight crew.

The FBI says Captain Clayton Osbon is still in Amarillo at this time undergoing a medical evaluation at Northwest Texas Hospital.

Jet Blue announced Osbon was suspended from his duties.

He faces up to twenty years in prison and a two-hundred and fifty thousand dollar fine for the charge.

It is unsure when Osbon will make a court appearance.
