A United Express flight from Jacksonville to Houston was forced to make an emergency landing in Mobile, Alabama last week after a woman became belligerent and stripped down to her underwear.
According to local news outlet WALA, 25-year-old Sierra Nicole McClinton got into an altercation with another passenger on Thursday’s flight before ultimately being detained by a flight attendant and another passenger.
McClinton, who was escorted off of the plane wearing only a t-shirt and underwear, allegedly appeared intoxicated and was yelling obscenities.
“CommutAir flight 4332, operating as United Express from Jacksonville to Houston, diverted to Mobile when a passenger became disruptive. The aircraft landed safely in Mobile where law enforcement officials met the aircraft at the gate. The flight continued on to Houston shortly after,” a CommutAir spokesperson said in a statement.

McClinton now faces charges of disorderly conduct and public intoxication. The impacted flight eventually continued on to Houston without incident.
