Plane diverted due to unruly passenger

Posted: Updated:

MEMPHIS (CNN)  - An Airtran flight -- on its way from Baltimore to Austin -- was diverted to Memphis Monday evening because of an unruly passenger.

Police say he tried to open an emergency exit at the back of the plane. Once the plane was on the ground in Memphis, the man was escorted off the plane. The man was detained by the FBI for two hours before being taken away in a police car.

No word on if charges will be filed.
