Unruly passenger forces UK-bound flight back to US
By Associated Press

Airline officials say a US Airways flight bound for London has returned to Philadelphia because of a problem with a disruptive passenger.

Airline spokeswoman Michelle Mohr says the passenger was restrained onboard Flight 728 by federal officials Tuesday night.

She says he was removed when the plane landed in Philadelphia, and the flight departed again for Heathrow about four hours after the normal departure time.

The airline didn't specify the nature of the disruptive behavior. No one was injured.

Airport police says a man on the plane was taken into custody by the FBI.
