Alaska Air Flight Diverted To Tulsa After Fireworks Found On

Alaska Air Flight Diverted To Tulsa After Fireworks Found Onboard

An Alaska Air flight from Seattle was diverted to Tulsa Thursday afternoon after a passenger brought fireworks and a knife on board.

The 737 left Seattle Thursday morning at 8:45 a.m. on its way to Orlando, Florida when it was diverted to Tulsa International Airport, where it landed shortly after two o'clock.

We're told the passenger, 38-year-old William Herbert Fritz, was removed from the plane and was in the custody of the FBI. Fireworks, cherry bombs, CO-2 cartridges and a Swiss Army knife were found in the passenger's carry-on bag, strangely enough by a passenger who was going through the man's bags.
