DENVER — Frontier Airlines officials say a plane traveling from Cincinnati, Ohio, to Las Vegas was diverted to Denver because of a passenger who became disruptive during the flight.

A statement from the airline says law enforcement officers removed the passenger when the plane landed in Denver Wednesday evening.

It's not clear what the passenger was doing to disrupt the flight or whether the person is in custody.

The website FlightAware says the plane was in Denver a little over an hour and arrived in Las Vegas after midnight Thursday.
