The FBI says initial indications are that an unruly passenger who prompted a Southwest Airlines flight to
make an emergency landing had no terroristic intent.
FBI Special Agent Mark White in Dallas said the bureau's investigation will continue, but that no threat was found on the U.S. citizen.
Amarillo Aviation Director Patrick Rhodes says the man became unruly and confronted the cabin crew.
Southwest Airlines spokesman Brad Hawkins said the flight crew of Flight 3683 from Los Angeles to Kansas City decided on an unscheduled landing about 3:30 p.m. Tuesday in Amarillo as a precaution.
He said the passenger was turned over to federal authorities for questioning.
Hawkins said none of the 136 passengers and five crew members was injured and the aircraft took off after a security sweep.
