A Delta Airlines flight that departed from BWI Thurgood Marshall airport en route to Salt Lake City Friday night was diverted to Minneapolis because of an unruly passenger, the airline said.
Minneapolis/St. Paul International Airport police removed the passenger from the plane and the flight continued to its intended destination, Delta spokesman Eric Torbenson said.
Several videos purporting to be of the incident were uploaded to YouTube, but Torbenson could not confirm whether the video was of flight No. 1189.
The videos show a woman screaming at fellow passengers, and finally police leading the woman off the plane. YouTube user who uploaded the video, Luz Dinorah Paro, wrote the woman had been drinking and raised her fist at a fellow passenger.
