FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — Officials say an unruly passenger aboard an American Airlines flight from Charlotte, North Carolina, to Las Vegas prompted an unscheduled landing at Dallas-Fort Worth.
American Airlines Flight 1735 was about midway through its 2,000-mile flight Friday when the disruption happened.
American Airlines spokesman Ross Feinstein says the Airbus 321 with 189 passengers aboard made an unscheduled landing at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport shortly after 1:30 p.m. Feinstein says the disruptive passenger was turned over to federal authorities. The flight resumed about 45 minutes later.
Feinstein referred questions about the nature of the disruption to the FBI but said that no one on the plane was injured. In an email, the FBI would say only that it's aware of the situation and is investigating to determine if a federal violation occurred.
