“Once I found out that they were turning the plane around is when I felt the remorse. I felt guilty,” Potok told the CBC.


Potok has been charged with mischief and “breach of recognizance” and is scheduled to appear in court on March 9. It’s not yet clear if he’ll face any jail time for his idiotic stunt. Potok has not posted anything related to the coronavirus prank on his Instagram account, which has been set to private.
