A JetBlue flight from New York to San Diego was diverted to Denver Thursday night, reportedly because of an unruly passenger.

A Denver International Airport spokesperson tells KDVR.com that Flight 185 landed around 7:15 p.m. in Denver, where a passenger was met by law-enforcement officers. 

The airline says 137 passengers were on board. The airline didn't release other details of the disturbance.

A passenger who shot cell phone video of a female passenger being escorted off the plane tells KDVR.com that the woman became upset after another passenger was moved to a seat near her that reportedly required a premium fee, and did not have to make the payment.

The flight took off at 9:30 p.m., resuming its trip to San Diego, according to KDVR.com. JetBlue says the incident is a customer service issue and no charges have been filed.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
