Flight makes emergency landing in Omaha

Posted by: KLKN Newsroom, 8@klkntv.com

A Southwest Airlines plane en route to California makes an emergency landing in Omaha after a passenger gets unruly during the flight.

Officials say the flight was forced to land late Sunday night after a passenger tried to open a door while the flight was in the air.

A passenger on board says he and two other passengers tackled the man when a flight attendant started screaming.

An Air Marshal was able to restrain him until police took the man into custody at Eppley Airfield.

The plane did continue its trip to California two hours later than scheduled.
