NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – A flight was diverted to the Nashville airport Thursday night due to an unruly passenger.

It happened on a flight from Memphis to Philadelphia around 6 p.m. Thursday.

According to a police affidavit, a flight attendant said passenger Bhisham Rohera began to shout at her when she walked by stating he wanted some water.

The flight attendant, according to the affidavit, told him she would bring him some “in just a minute.”

The affidavit stated that Rohera then reportedly went to the back galley and began going through carts. When he was told to return to his seat, Rohera allegedly yelled, “This is f***ing ridiculous.”

The flight attendant said Rohera began looking through carts for a second time after returning from the bathroom.

After Rohera was removed from the plane, the flight continued on to Philadelphia where it landed around 9 p.m.

Rohera, according to a police affidavit, is under investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation for interfering with flight operations.
