Police: Plane diverted to Boston because of unruly passenger

BOSTON (AP) — Massachusetts state police say a flight from London to Houston has been diverted to Boston because of an unruly male passenger.

Police say troopers boarded the British Airways plane after it landed safely at Logan International Airport around noon Wednesday.

Authorities say a male passenger was reportedly being disruptive and several other passengers restrained him.

It’s unclear what the nature of the disruption was but a statement released by British Airways says customers and crew shouldn’t have to suffer any form of abuse. The airline says such behavior will not be tolerated.

British Airways says the plane was diverted as a precaution and that the flight will continue to Houston as soon as possible.
