Plane diverts to Memphis after passenger attempts to open emergency exit

(WMC-TV) – An AirTran flight diverted to Memphis Monday after a passenger tried to open an emergency exit in the plane, according to a Memphis Airport Authority chair.

The plane was on its way from Baltimore to Austin. The passenger was described in an email as unruly, but responding officers did not think the man was intoxicated.

The flight has since landed in Austin.

No one on the flight was harmed. The Airport Authority and the FBI will determine if any charges will be filed.
