The passenger was “physically detained by other passengers and flight crew” and was met by police upon arrival, according to Salt Lake City Police in a statement.
The flight then continued to Los Angeles and landed about four hours after its scheduled arrival, Virgin Atlantic said.
“The safety and wellbeing of our customers and crew is always our top priority and we don’t tolerate any behavior that compromises this,” the airline statement said. “We always want our customers to have the best experience when they fly with us and our cabin crew are highly trained to deal with any individuals that may impact that experience for others.”
