ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Authorities say a flight from Los Angeles to Nashville was diverted to New Mexico on Friday afternoon after a passenger tried to break into the cockpit.

Delta Air Lines says the unruly passenger was on Flight 386 when he made the attempt but other passengers and crew members detained him.

The plane was diverted to Albuquerque International Sunport where the man was arrested.

The FBI is investigating. No one was injured.
