A pilot made threats to "deliberately crash" the stolen aircraft while circling Tupelo, a city in northeast Mississippi, for hours.
Governor Tate Reeves stated on Saturday that the pilot of the aeroplane that crashed safely into a Walmart store has been arrested.
On Twitter, Governor Reeves declared that the "problem has been settled" and no one was hurt.
The aircraft above North MS has gone down. We are grateful that the issue has been rectified and that no one was hurt.
I want to especially thank local, state, and federal law enforcement for their exemplary professionalism in handling this crisis.
Police classified the Beechcraft King Air 90's flight time of well than five hours as a "hazardous circumstance."
The police spoke with the pilot but provided no information regarding the suspect's identify or motive.
