FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM) - An American Airlines flight leaving from Chicago on its way to London Heathrow Airport made an unscheduled stop in Gander, Newfoundland after a passenger became non-compliant with flight crews.

The unruly passenger is described as a 35-year-old male, but has not been identified.

Roughly an hour into the flight, he became “non-compliant” according to Kent Powell, a spokesperson for the Fort Worth-based airline company.

The 8-person crew deemed the man a safety risk, and decided to stop at the closest convenient airport.

He was removed from the 187 passenger plane by in Newfoundland by local authorities.

The plane refueled and continued on to London Heathrow, where it arrived at 8:32 a.m.
