Los Angeles bound Virgin America flight VX169 had to divert to Denver after a passenger started to spark panic among his fellow passengers. The man was allegedly laying out wires in the aisle of the flight.
The flight took off from Newark in New Jersey on Saturday 25th June.
According to the passengers and the crew of the flight, the man was playing with some electronic equipment. Just when the flight authority ordered him to put the equipment away, the unruly passenger became upset but put them away anyway. After a while, the man got those electronic gadgets out again and started to lay wires on the floor of the flight.
Some passengers also informed that the man was sticking his fingers in the faces of other passengers. But the passengers did not lose their cool and remained in good spirits during the event.
The flight crew informed the pilot and the pilot decided to divert the flight to Denver International Airport as soon as possible.
Police in the Denver International Airport escorted the man out of the plane. But the unnamed man was not taken into custody as no explosive device was recovered from his belongings.
The pilot informed that the man had too many issues, that is why the crew asked the man to get off the plane.
After the crew got rid of the man, the delayed flight started towards Los Angeles again.
