It happened on American Eagle flight 4624 from Nashville to LaGuardia around 8:45 p.m.
Officials said, at first, no one claimed the phones so the pilot diverted the flight. Later, a passenger did claim the phones. That person was detained and was questioned by the FBI and TSA. The TSA says the passenger needed medical attention due to his/her behavior.
The flight was resumed a short time later.
There's no word on the passenger's identity.
