PHOENIX (CBS5) -

A 28-year-old intoxicated traveler who was part of a wedding party got in a fight with another passenger, leading the flight to be diverted to Phoenix, police said.

Phoenix Police Department spokesman James Holmes said the man became unruly about 11:30 p.m. Tuesday aboard a flight from Los Angeles to Miami. He got in a fight with another passenger who was traveling with his family.

The man wouldn't listen to the flight attendant, so American Airlines diverted to Phoenix, where the passenger was kicked off the plane.

Holmes said no one involved wanted to prosecute the man, so he was just booked on a later flight.
