Houston, Texas — Police had to meet a flight on the tarmac in Houston, after a passenger on board was verbally abusive to a crew member.
Southwest Airlines says the passenger was not following crew instructions and out of an abundance of caution, the Captain declared there was a threat.
Law enforcement met with the passenger and then let that person continue traveling.
The flight was coming from Albuquerque and it landed safely.
