A plane flying from Baltimore to Austin, Texas had to make an emergency landing in Memphis after authorities say a passenger tried to open the emergency door in flight.
ABC News reports the incident happened while the AirTran plane was over Little Rock, Arkansas. The pilot turned it around to land in Memphis.
Officials say a man tried to open two emergency exits at the back of the plane. Flight attendants managed to pull him away from the doors and keep him restrained until the plane landed.
The FBI was called in to question him. No word if charges will be filed.
No one else on board was injured.
