Airliner Makes Emergency Landing To Remove Disruptive Singing Passenger

An American Airlines flight from Los Angeles to New York made an emergency landing on Thursday to remove a woman who would not stop singing I Will Always Love You.
The solo performance began shortly into the flight from Los Angeles to New York and her crooning quickly became too much for passengers and staff on the domestic flight last Thursday.  The pilot was forced to change course halfway through the six hour flight and make an unscheduled stop at Kansas City so officers could escort the woman from the plane. Airport spokesman Joe McBride told WBTV:  "The woman was being disruptive and was removed from the plane for interfering with the flight crew.  There was a federal air marshal on the aircraft, who subdued the woman and put her in cuffs and removed her from the plane."
The woman was still singing as she was taken from the cabin in handcuffs. During her interview with local police, she claimed to be a diabetic in need of medication. The cops released her without charges, but the airline refused to allow her to board another flight.
