Due to an unruly passenger, the aircraft had to divert to Dallas Fort-Worth. The video above shows the whole ordeal that took place.

Passengers on the plane dubbed her “possessed” as she started climbing over seats and started screaming, claiming that she was being kidnapped.

Upon arrival into Dallas for the Denver-bound flight that diverted, a total of three passengers were offloaded from the plane.

Once the passengers had been removed, the aircraft, originating from Houston, departed Dallas and continued on to Denver thereafter.

It is unclear what the outcome for the three removed passengers were, but it is clear that regardless of the conditions for this, they will be placed on a no-fly list with the carrier.
