JetBlue Airways says a flight from New York to San Diego was diverted to Denver Thursday night because of an unruly passenger.

JetBlue says the plane landed around 7:15 p.m. in Denver, where the passenger was met by law enforcement officers.

The airline says 137 passengers were on board, many of whom pulled out their cell phones to capture the incident it all as it unfolded.

Sources say the unruly passenger was sitting in a premium seat and wasn't happy that another passenger was moved up next to her because of a broken TV.

She was upset the other passenger didn't pay extra to sit there.

The woman was removed from the plane, but not arrested.
