Boston airport: Man held, tried to enter cockpit

A man has been arrested in Boston after allegedly trying to enter the cockpit of an Air Wisconsin commuter jet flying from Maine to Philadelphia.

Airport spokesman Phil Orlandella says the plane was diverted to Boston's Logan International Airport after other passengers restrained the unruly man. Orlandella says the man was arrested by state police and could face charges of interfering with a flight crew.

Orlandella says the flight from Portland, Maine, had 50 passengers and three crew members.
