Delta flight 2370 from LaGuardia to West Palm Beach was diverted to Jacksonville after taking off around 7 p.m. Monday.

Allegedly, a fight ensured after a man who was sleeping on his tray table became angry after the woman sitting in front of him reclined her seat. 

Delta issued the following statement: 

“Delta Flight 2370 from New York-LaGuardia to West Palm Beach was re-routed to Jacksonville International Airport due to a passenger disruption. Out of an abundance of caution, the captain elected to divert to the closest airport. Local law enforcement met the flight and removed the passenger. The aircraft continued to West Palm Beach arrived at 11:13 p.m. We apologize for the inconvenience to customers.”

The flight was diverted to Jacksonville and the woman was reportedly taken into police custody but, was not arrested in the end and was a allowed to leave in a rental car. The rest of the passengers finally made their way to West Palm after the delay.
