An argument over a $12 blanket fee diverted a Hawaiian Airlines flight that departed Las Vegas bound for Honolulu to Los Angeles on Wednesday morning.
The plane took off and was in the air when a 66-year-old male passenger became cold and asked if he could have a blanket.
An airline spokesman said the disruptive passenger was on board Hawaiian Airlines Flight 7.
The flight, which was reportedly delayed for four hours, landed in Los Angeles where the man was removed by police and Federal Bureau of Investigation agents. Police determined there was no criminal threat, Pedregon said.
Colts trade TE Dwayne Allen to Patriots
The Patriots love tight ends who can score, so it won't be a surprise at all if Allen fits right in with New England's offense. Allen, a 2012 third-round pick, never flourished into the prolific pass-catcher the Colts expected him to be.
He was allowed to book another flight to his destination.
Another passenger, George Enriques, told the Honolulu Star-Advertiser that the man told him: "They're not treating me right".
Pedregon said airline staffers felt threatened, so the pilot diverted the plane.
"(The crew) took offence to the statement that he made. The flight attendant said the cabin was "on secured lock-down".

Some Russian and Syrian regime aircraft mistakenly bombed a village that Syrian Arab Coalition forces had liberated from ISIS. Russian Federation launched an operation against militants of the Islamic State group (outlawed in Russia) in September 2015.
"They're doing it to protect the passengers as well as the crew, because I think this is a very expensive stop for Hawaiian", she said.
"I thought it was ridiculous", witness Eileen Bernstrom told the news station. About an hour later, the pilot announced that the plane was landing in Los Angeles but had to dump its fuel over the ocean first.
On a United Airlines flight just last month, a pilot gave a weird speech before takeoff - prompting dozens of concerned passengers to flee the plane.
Cellphone footage of the incident showed the man saying that all the "illegals" should be kicked off the plane, moments before he and a woman were asked to collect their belongings and exit the aircraft.
