Vacationing Calif. cops subdue violent airline passenger

SAN JOSE, Calif. — At 40,000 feet over the Pacific, the only thing vacationing San Jose police officers Luan Nguyen and Manny Vasquez wanted was to catch some Z's, maybe see an action movie and finally hear the announcement: "Welcome to San Francisco International Airport."
What they heard instead was the captain: "I have a situation on board. If there are any law enforcement officers on board, please identify yourselves to a flight attendant."
