A commercial flight from London to Los Angeles Tuesday had to make an emergency landing after an unruly passenger attempted to breach the cockpit, officials said.

Virgin Atlantic flight 141 took off from London Heathrow (LHR) but was forced to land before reaching its anticipated destination of Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) after the passenger’s disturbance, Fox 13 of Salt Lake City reported.

The plane landed at Salt Lake City International Airport (SLC), where the disruptive passenger was taken into custody, KUTV reported.

The passenger fought with other passengers but was not successful in their attempt to breach the cockpit, per the report.
