Alaska Airlines spokeswoman Bobbie Egan said in a statement Monday night that Alaska Airlines Flight 107 from Seattle landed without incident in Anchorage.
Egan says shortly before the descent into Anchorage, a disruptive male passenger was detained. She says he was removed by law enforcement after the plane parked at the gate and was then transported to a local hospital.
