CHICAGO (CBS)– An American Airlines flight from Los Angeles to Chicago was diverted to Albuquerque because of a disruptive passenger.
An American Airlines spokesperson said the flight landed safely just before 3 p.m. Wednesday.
Police met the plane, which was back in the air an hour later.
A witness told CBS 2 that while the disruptive passenger did not “specifically” hit the flight attendant, he did “verbally assault her many times and reached out and touched her a few times.”
The witness told CBS 2 the man also pulled down a bag of snacks off a cart during the incident.
