Man disrupts two flights after leaving Las Vegas

CREATED Jul. 3, 2013

Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- An unruly passenger caused two flights to be diverted beginning Monday night.

The first time it happened was on a U.S. Airways flight from Las Vegas to Charlotte, NC, on Monday night.

The pilot said the guy was being disruptive and unruly so he landed the plane in Albuquerque, NM, early Tuesday morning.

No charges were filed and the man was free to go.

The same man then boarded an American Eagle flight to Chicago.

That plane was forced to land after he tried to open the door mid-flight.

Passengers say he was shouting and wouldn't listen to the flight attendant.

The flight was able to make a safe landing at Kansas City International Airport.

The Transportation Security Administration has not explained why the man was allowed to board another flight.
