Fight causes plane to divert to RDU

RALEIGH Eyewitness News discovered that Jet Blue flight 455 from Boston to Fort Lauderdale, Florida landed at RDU at 5:40 p.m.

The captain diverted the plane after two passengers, two brothers got into a fight.

Apparently, smoking in the bathroom sparked the fight. An unidentified man was arrested by federal agents after he got into a fight with his brother.

Reportedly RDU police met the plane once it arrived at the gate, but the FBI is now investigating. The plane later left RDU around 7:30.
