An American Airlines flight eventually had to make an emergency landing after a passenger became unmanageable, kicked seats, shouted at other passengers and smoked cigarettes.

US flight 2408 from Phoenix to Minneapolis drove on to Denver on Friday after a passenger became disruptive an hour after takeoff.

& # 39; He hit the chair in front of him and the lady shouted, & # 39; told passenger Jim Dickey CNN.

Dickey said the man started screaming and making threats against the other passengers.

After about 20 minutes of disruption, the pilot decided to divert the flight and land as quickly as possible.

Upon arrival in Denver, the man was removed from the plane by the police.

& # 39; You could tell by the sound that the plane was starting to descend fairly quickly after the flight attendants started noticing what was going on & # 39 ;, Dickey said.

At one point the disruptive man got up to go to the bathroom, where he started to smoke a cigarette and shouted: & you are completely sewn! & # 39;

The flight was an hour in its journey when the passenger began to hit the seat in front of him and cursed another passenger. The plane was diverted and landed in Denver, Colorado

Some passengers began to prepare to physically limit the passenger.

& # 39; The man behind me switched seats to the aisle in case things went wrong, & # 39; Dickey explained.

American Airlines has issued a statement confirming that the flight has been diverted due to a disruptive passenger.

& # 39; The police have met the flight and the plane has departed again. Thank you to our crew members for taking care of our customers in this situation. & # 39;

Dickey said the rest of the flight was the quietest he had ever experienced.

& # 39; When we returned to Denver and moved on to Minneapolis, I think no one said anything, & # 39; he said.
