DSC_4940A Delta Air Lines flight from Indianapolis to Paris was forced to divert late Thursday after an “unruly passenger” began to act erratically.

Delta Flight 500 was in the air when, according to the criminal complaint, Ian Robert James Morin began “yelling and acting erratically.” Flight attendants tried to calm Morin down but he continued to shout and struck a flight attendant in the throat, an action he tried but failed to repeat.

The flight then diverted to Detroit where it landed at 8:05 p.m. local time. The aircraft was met at the gate by police and Morin was arrested.

Passengers on the Paris flight were offered hotel rooms and the flight continued Friday morning.
