KANSAS CITY -

A customer on an American Airlines flight would not stop singing Whitney Houston's "I Will Always Love You" and caused a nonstop flight from Los Angeles to New York to be diverted.

"The passenger was detained, not arrested, and then released pending further investigation by the TSA (Transportation Safety Administration) and federal air marshals," said Tom McKenna, a Kansas City International Airport spokesman.

"I can confirm that she was singing 'I Will Always Love You' as she was escorted off the plane." said McKenna.

Kansas City Aviation Department officials told KMBC that the woman failed to cooperate with a federal air marshal. KMBC reports that the woman told authorities her behavior was a result of her diabetes.

"The only thing I can confirm is that American Airlines Flight 4 from Los Angeles (LAX) to New York (JFK) last Thursday evening diverted to Kansas City (MCI) because of a disruptive passenger," American Airlines spokesman Matt Miller told CNN.
