An Alaska Airlines jet bound for San Diego was diverted to Denver after a passenger allegedly became agitated and started yelling threats.
DENVER (AP) — A plane heading to San Diego was diverted to Denver after witnesses say a passenger started yelling threats.
Passengers told KMGH-TV (http://bit.ly/20Lfb1P ) that a man brought his own alcohol on the Alaska Airlines flight from Boston on Tuesday night. When he wasn’t allowed to drink it, he yelled, “I’m not a terrorist,” and later shouted, “We’re all going to die. You’re all going to die.”
Passenger Claire Conroy told The Associated Press that the situation was unnerving but passengers realized the man was just very drunk.
Denver International Airport spokesman Heath Montgomery says the Transportation Security Administration and Denver police met the plane and allowed it to continue to San Diego.
