Flight diverted to Indiana; passenger arrested for striking three people

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — A flight was diverted to Indianapolis International Airport and a passenger was arrested Monday, according to Indianapolis airport officials.

Officials say a woman became “unruly” during American Airlines flight 1284 from Miami to Chicago O’Hare Airport. She was restrained and moved to the back of the plane.

As she was being moved, she struck a flight attendant and a passenger, according to officials.

Airport police boarded the plane and took the woman into custody. During the arrest, officials say, she kicked an airport police officer.

“I was the most scared I’ve probably every been in my life because you don’t know what’s happening, and they don’t tell you anything,” explained Jim Saviano, who spoke to WISH-TV after tweeting a video of the woman being taken off the plane.
