A Delta flight bound for Atlanta was forced to land at DFW International Airport because of a disruptive passenger, the airline said Friday.

The flight originated in Orange County, California, on Thursday night.

In a statement, Delta did not say how the passenger was being disruptive. He was removed from the aircraft.

The 199 passengers and six-member crew were on the ground in DFW for three hours before resuming the flight to Atlanta, Delta’s hub.

“We apologize to our customers on board for the disruption and delay to their travel plans,” Delta officials said in the statement.
