The plane safely landed in Albuquerque around 2:20 p.m. MT (1:20 p.m. CT) and the passenger was arrested by airport police.
The flight has been grounded for several hours in Albuquerque and is not expected to take off until at least 8:15 p.m. MT (7:15 p.m. CT). The flight isn’t expected to land in Nashville until 12 a.m. Saturday local time.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation is looking into the incident.
Editor’s note: An earlier report incorrectly stated that the plane had already taken off and was expected to land in Nashville at 5:35 p.m. This has been corrected.
