MIAMI INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT, FLA. (WSVN) - A disruptive passenger on board a flight headed to Las Vegas from Miami caused the jetliner to change course, early Saturday.

According to witnesses, a woman on board the American Airlines flight that took off from Miami International Airport attacked a member of the crew, at around 2:45 a.m.

The flight was diverted to Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport. A 7News viewer shot cellphone video capturing the woman being carried out of the aircraft by two police officers.

Once off the plane, police restrained the passenger in a wheelchair with a bag over her head.

After her removal, the flight continued to Las Vegas and arrived on a three-hour delay.

Authorities are investigating the incident.
