Continental Jet Lands in Houston After Passenger Disturbance, Brake Problems

Police are investigating a disturbance involving a passenger on a Continental Express jet on a flight from Cincinnati to Houston's Intercontinental Airport.

The aircraft also experienced a brake problem and sustained a flat tire when it landed about 9:30 a.m. Friday and then taxied to a gate.

No details were immediately available.

The Houston Chronicle said air traffic controllers had given the flight a higher landing priority after the crew reported a woman passenger had interfered with a flight attendant.

No injuries were reported and passengers departed without further incident.
