    A passenger woke up from a nap, raised his fist and punched out the interior pane of an airplane window on a flight from Las Vegas to Florida, authorities said. Ryan J. Marchione, 24, shattered the inner plastic shield covering the glass window and disconnected its frame about 90 minutes into the America West flight, according to an FBI affidavit.

    The outer window was not damaged and the plane did not depressurize, the airline said.

    Marchione was arrested when the plane landed Wednesday at Tampa International Airport.

    He faces up to 20 years in federal prison if convicted of a federal charge of damaging or destroying an aircraft while it was operating.
