A plane that took off from LaGuardia Airport Monday night had to be diverted because of an unruly passenger.

Delta Airlines Flight 2370 was on headed to West Palm Beach when witnesses say two women started arguing over reclining seats.

"This woman who was sitting next to me knitting actually just tried reclining her seat back and the woman behind her started screaming and swearing and the flight attendant came over and that just exacerbated what was going on and then she demanded that the flight land," said Aaron Klipin, a passenger on the plane.

The flight was diverted to Jacksonville where the screaming woman was escorted from the plane by police.

The plane then continued on to West Palm Beach.
