OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Authorities say a flight from Washington, D.C., to Los Angeles diverted to Oklahoma City after an unruly passenger assaulted a flight attendant.

Police say an air marshal who was on board the Delta Air Lines flight had the passenger in custody when the flight landed in Oklahoma on Thursday night.

The Transportation Security Administration says the air marshal was also assaulted during the response and was injured but didn’t need medical attention.

The flight continued on to Los Angeles after the passenger was removed.

Police say the passenger has been booked into jail on complaints of disorderly conduct and public drunkenness.
