This plane, an Embraer E-175 which came from Indianapolis and was to land at La Guardia, “declared an emergency and landed (…) without incident in reaction to the behavior of a passenger towards the end of the flight”, indicated the company in a message sent to AFP.

“On exiting the active runway, the plane stopped on a taxiway and carried out an emergency evacuation as a precaution,” added Republic Airways, adding that the “passenger involved in the incident was taken into custody ”.

When contacted, a company spokesperson gave no details on the passenger’s behavior. Contacted by AFP, the New York airport authority did not immediately follow up.
