Disruptive teen, 13, detained on American Airlines flight from Maui to LAX

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -American Airlines says a flight from Maui to Los Angeles was diverted to Honolulu on Tuesday after a 13-year-old boy became disruptive.

Witnesses say the boy tried to kick a window next to his seat and also became physically involved with his own mother. Tensions began to rise about an hour inside the flight, causing the pilot to turn the plane.

The airline says flex cuffs were used to hold the boy. The video also showed a stewardess channel tapping him on his seat.

The flight landed safely and passengers were put on other flights or given hotel rooms.
