Earlier today, a pilot decided to make an emergency landing at @LGAairport due to a passenger disturbance. The passenger is in custody. We are monitoring the situation, and there is no reason to believe there is any danger to New Yorkers at this time.
The earlier incident involving a disruptive American Airlines/Republic Airways passenger and an evacuation of passengers has been resolved, and the airport is operating normally. *JC
