Two passengers got into a fight on a plane at Miami International Airport on Friday, prompting police to evacuate the plane.

American Airlines Flight 139 was originally scheduled to leave Miami at 12:20 p.m., local time, but did not depart until 2:52 p.m. according to FlightAware.

Witnesses told Miami-Dade police that one of the two passengers referenced a bomb

Another passenger who was on the flight told the Miami Herald that the captain made an announcement, saying someone “muttered something that sounded like a threat.”
