NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – A man is in jail after a United Airlines flight was forced to make an emergency landing in Nashville Monday night.
According to an affidavit, United Express flight 3550 was scheduled to fly from Cincinnati to Houston but made an emergency landing in Nashville after a man, identified as Mohammed Nasser Aldoseri, broke out of the plane’s bathroom door and spoke very loudly in Arabic.
The affidavit goes on to say the suspect’s actions “caused extreme concern for passengers and the flight crew.”
The report states the plane’s captain chose to divert the flight to Nashville around 9:30 p.m. where the plane made a safe landing and the 26-year-old man was arrested.
“The captain came on and said, ‘We can’t back up until everyone is in their seat with their seatbelt on, including the guy in the bathroom talking on the cell phone,’ and it was that guy,” explained Kyle Huff. “So the flight attendant started banging on the door and he finally came out.”

Aldoseri is facing charges of Public Intoxication and Disorderly Conduct.
The United flight continued to Houston after a brief delay in Nashville.
