ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Authorities say a disruptive passenger forced a Delta Air Lines flight from Atlanta to Los Angeles to land at the Albuquerque International Sunport between 6 and 7 p.m. Thursday.

Airport spokesman Daniel Jiron told the Albuquerque Journal (https://bit.ly/1HJ84bv) that Sunport police arrested the passenger, who was traveling on Delta Flight 81, once the plane landed.

Jiron tells the Journal that he doesn’t know the nature of the incident that made the pilot feel he had to land the plane.

He adds that the FBI was called, which is standard in cases like this.

The man was not charged and did not get back on the plane. The plane left for Los Angeles around 8 p.m.
