WOODBURY - The JetBlue pilot who had a midair meltdown has reportedly suffered another psychotic episode in prison. Clayton Osbon has been in a North Carolina federal prison since he was found not guilty by reason of insanity.

Osbon stormed the aircraft and was screaming about religion and terrorists on a JFK to Las Vegas flight in March. Osbon was taken down by passengers including some from Long Island.

Osbon's court hearing this week is postponed until October so he can continue to be evaluated.
