Delta flight diverted, escorted to TIA by F-16s due to unruly passenger
TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -
A Delta flight headed to Los Angeles from San Antonio was diverted to Tucson Wednesday due to an unruly passenger, according to the Tucson Airport Authority.
One suspect was detained and removed from the aircraft.
He is currently in FBI custody.
There were about 80 people on the flight, who deplaned and were rescreened, to continue on their original flight to LA.
No one was hurt during the incident.
Ryan Healy, a passenger on the plane, was tweeting during the ordeal.
The suspect appeared to have a breakdown and was uncooperative, according to Healy.
He said a flight attendant told him the suspect made verbal threat to the aircraft.
Officials first received contact about the incident at about 4:30 p.m., due to interference with the flight crew.
Two F-16s escorted the Delta flight down and the suspect was taken into custody by the FBI and Tucson Police Department.
According to Captain Bader with the Tucson Airport Authority Police, he hadn't seen a response (the F-16 escort) like this before.
The Tucson Fire Department, the Pima County Sheriff's Department and Border Patrol arrived at the scene within 20 minutes. Original article here
