FLIGHT DIVERTED

Pensacola Police say a flight from Pensacola to Miami on Friday was diverted back to Pensacola after a female passenger tried to fake a medical condition to get a better seat. The American Airlines flight returned to Pensacola International Airport around 6:30 am. The woman refused to leave the plane after it landed and the rest of the passengers were evacuated. Police officers ¬†and the plane’s captain eventually persuaded the woman to leave the airplane and she was taken into custody under the Baker Act for a mental health evaluation. Criminal charges have not been filed against the woman.
