CHANTILLY, Va. (AP) — No one has been charged after an American Eagle flight from Chicago to Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport was diverted to Dulles International Airport because of a report of a suspicious passenger.

American Eagle spokesman Tim Smith says Flight 4117 landed safely with 45 passengers aboard around 11:50 p.m. Monday.

Transportation Security Administration spokesman Greg Soule says the agency was notified of “a passenger acting unusually” and then rerouted the flight to Dulles, which is about 26 miles from the nation’s capital.

Soule says TSA and law enforcement officials interviewed passengers, who were all cleared. No hazardous materials were found on the plane.

Rob Yingling of the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority says nobody on the flight was charged.
