Man removed from San Diego flight for making alleged threats

SAN DIEGO – A male passenger was removed from a San Francisco-bound plane at Lindbergh Field just prior to take off Tuesday morning after he allegedly made concerning remarks. 

The man was escorted off United Airlines Flight 662 just after 7 a.m. while the plane was parked at the gate. He was removed by United Airlines staff because he was “saying things that caused concern,” according to a Lindbergh Field spokesperson.  A United spokesperson added that he made threatening remarks that were enough to make the flight crew uncomfortable. 

The plane was scheduled for takeoff at 7:13 a.m., but did not depart until 7:36 a.m. It was scheduled to land in San Francisco at 8:48 a.m. 

Officers with the San Diego Harbor Police Department transported the man to San Diego County Behavioral Health Services for a mental evaluation.
