A United Airlines flight got a military escort before making an emergency landing at Washington-Dulles International Airport Thursday night when a passenger reportedly began praying in the aisle and refused to return to his seat.

United Flight 662, a Boeing 757-200 (N589UA), was on approach to Dulles from Denver at the time of the incident.

The male suspect according to one report was handcuffed and placed in the back of a police car after being removed from the flight.
