Plane throws off passenger for singing Whitney

Woman refuses to stop singing “I Will Always Love You”

An American Airlines flight from Los Angeles to JFK in New York made an emergency detour after a female passenger refused to stop singing the Whitney Houston hit “I Will Always Love You”.
The pilot made the stop at Kansas City International Airport, almost three hours into the flight. Airport police there escorted the woman off the plane. The woman, who said she was a diabetic, was later released without charge.
“The woman was being disruptive and was removed from the plane for interfering with the flight crew,” Joe McBride, an airport spokesman told KCTV. “There was a federal air marshal on the aircraft who subdued the woman and put her in cuffs and removed her from the plane.”
