Altercation diverts Southwest flight to Denver

DENVER – A Southwest Airlines flight from Phoenix to Detroit was diverted to Denver after a woman was involved in an altercation with another passenger.

Airline spokesman Chris Mainz says he doesn’t have details on what happened on Flight 1402 Saturday, but he says he does not know of any injuries.

He says the flight was on the ground in Denver about 30 minutes while the woman was removed from the flight and turned over to authorities. The flight then headed to Detroit.

There were 137 people on board.

Denver police could not immediately be reached late Sunday for comment on whether the woman faces charges. Her name wasn’t released.

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.
