Plane Gets Military Escort As Passenger Insists On Praying In Aisle During Landing

A United Airlines flight from Denver to Washington, D.C. got a military escort into Washington's Dulles airport last night after the crew reported an emergency.  According to the Chicago Tribune and KUSA-TV, as the plane was preparing to land, a male passenger, instead of following flight crew instructions, stood up in the middle of the aisle and began to pray, apparently acting in a disorderly manner. After the plane landed, police and paramedics took the passenger off in handcuffs.
