DENVER (CBS4) – An unruly passenger on a JetBlue plane was taken into custody at Denver International Airport on Sunday and now will face federal charges.

The pilot made an unscheduled stop in Denver and Marcus Covington was arrested.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office says Covington will likely face charges of interfering with a flight crew.
