DENVER (CBS4)– A battle over legroom on a United Airlines flight triggered an investigation at Denver International Airport on Wednesday.

The FBI said it all began on a flight to Denver from Miami. Two passengers, one seated in front of the other, began arguing over putting the seat back.

The FBI said the 75-year-old man sitting behind the woman kicked the seat so hard she claimed whiplash.

She was taken to a hospital for treatment.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office declined charges in the case.
