A Continental flight from Houston had to make an unexpected stop because of an unruly passenger. The express jet left Houston last night for Palm Springs. One of the 46 passengers is said to have been verbally abusive with a flight attendant and other passengers. The plane landed in Midland and officials took the man off the flight.

The plane made it to Palm Springs around midnight after only a 30 minute delay.
