Southwest Airlines flight makes landing after 'air rage' incident

- A Southwest Airlines jetliner bound for San Francisco returned to the gate at LAX without taking off after a disturbance onboard, an airport police officer said.

Flight 2010 left the gate at about 10:25 p.m. Sunday, airport police Officer Rob Pedregon said.

Police were notified of a disturbance on board at 10:43 p.m. when the jetliner was on the taxiway and the plane was ordered to return to the gate.

The original call mentioned a fight between two passengers, Pedregon said. The FBI took over after the flight was diverted, he said. There was no word whether there were any arrests.

A check of Southwest Airlines' website showed the flight was canceled.
