TSA: Teen causes disruption on Houston-bound Southwest Airlines flight

Headline Goes Here

HOUSTON - Houston police responded to a Houston airport after officials said a threat was made on a Southwest Airlines flight.

The Southwest flight landed at Hobby Airport around 1 p.m. Tuesday afternoon.

According to TSA, the incident was caused by a 16-year-old boy on board who was listening to his music too loudly. Officials said the flight attendant asked the teen to turn his music down but he refused and became verbally abusive.

"It seems like he was giving (the flight attendant) some lip back," said passenger Hafiz Amershi who was sitting two rows behind the teen. "I heard the stewardess saying, 'You can't talk like that to a stewardess and the cops will be called if you use that kind of language.'"

Southwest Airlines officials said, out of an abundance of caution, the pilot asked that Houston Police meet the plane at the gate.

Police question the teenager but he was not taken into custody.  Southwest officials decided let the 16-year-old continue traveling on his connecting flight.
