Spokesman Perry Cooper says the man was not armed and appeared to be under the influence of drugs. He was arrested inside an American Airlines plane after a short struggle. Cooper says the man will be booked for investigation of trespass and assault of an officer.
The arrested man suffered minor injuries; Cooper says officers were unhurt.
The spokesman says K-9s are checking the plane for anything suspicious before it returns to service.
Cooper says no other airport operations were affected.
