United Flight Diverted – Disruptive Passenger Hauled Away

It seems like this happens about one a day! Authorities say a flight from New York to Chicago was diverted to Detroit Metropolitan Airport due to a disruptive passenger.

United Airlines flight 3461 operated by Shuttle America landed about 8 p.m. Thursday at the airport in the Detroit suburb of Romulus. Airport spokesman Brian Lassaline tells The Detroit News a passenger was removed and was in custody early Friday.

WDIV-TV reports a woman assaulted another passenger on the flight and was restrained. The station broadcast video taken from inside the plane showing authorities carrying a woman through the plane’s main aisle while passengers applauded.

The plane from LaGuardia Airport had 69 passengers and four crew members. It continued to O’Hare International Airport, arriving about an hour late.
