AMARILLO, TX - A group of unruly passengers caused a Southwest Airlines flight headed from San Francisco to Chicago to make a pit stop in Amarillo on Monday night.

"They just were not cooperating with the flight attendants and they were just being loud and obnoxious," said one passenger.

The crew called ahead and officers were waiting at Rick Husband Amarillo International Airport when the plane landed. They detained six men, then sent the plane on its way. As for the guys who were yanked off the plane, they're charged with interference with a flight crew. They should be charged with "interference with passengers" for delaying the flight by nearly three hours.
