Flight 728 was over Massachusetts when it turned around and headed back to Philly. The man was taken off the plane and federal authorities brought him into custody after landing.
Strange experience on @USAirways tonight. Flight turned around after an hour to remove an unruly passenger. Air marshalls swooped in.— Gene Willis (@GeneWillis) May 14, 2014
"Flight 728 from Philadelphia to London Heathrow returned to Philadelphia because of a disruptive passenger," US Airways spokeswoman Michelle Mohr told NBC 10. "The passenger was restrained on board by federal officials."
After a delay, the plane did take off again and was expected to land in London on Wednesday morning E.S.T.
