Plane diverted after passenger tries to open door
An airplane flying from Dulles International Airport to Las Vegas has been diverted to Denver International Airport after a passenger tried to open a door on the plane while it was in flight.
DIA spokesman Jeff Green says that United Flight 223 was diverted to Denver at 5:10 p.m. Saturday, and police who met the plane at the gate took the passenger into custody.
Green said the police were interviewing the passenger Saturday night but did not know if the man would be charged.
United Airlines and the Denver police department did not immediately return calls from The Associated Press.
