The flight was an American Airlines plane heading from Phoenix to JFK International Airport.
There were 121 people on board, including members of the rock band, "Augustine." A band member sent out a tweet saying that a passenger was threatening to kill people on the plane.
Whoa. Emergency landing in Witchita. Passenger threatening the plane that he wants to kill people. Bad scene.— AUGUSTINES (@WeAreAugustines) November 4, 2015
The threat forced the plane to make an emergency landing in Wichita, Kanasas.
The band then posted a photo that showed police on board the flight:
The passenger accused of making threats was identified as Jason Baroletti of Holbrook, Long Island.
He was arrested and charged with making a criminal threat.
