Airline passenger subdued after shouting about Allah

Posted:

Some tense moments aboard a flight headed to Houston Wednesday night.

Authorities say two people on Continental flight 1113 were arrested after a disturbance on the plane.

Apparently a traveler wanted to smoke and ignored the no smoking signs.

Passengers say he also yelled about Allah:

"He was screaming, 'Allah is great!'  It kind of worries you when that happens, said one passenger.

"There were enough men to hold him down.  Absolutely, people were leaning toward the aisle," said another. 

The flight returned to Portland where the passenger and his companion were arrested then continued on to Houston without incident.
