NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – A man is in jail after a United Airlines flight was forced to make an emergency landing in Nashville Monday night.

According to an affidavit, United Express flight 3550 was scheduled to fly from Cincinnati to Houston but made an emergency landing in Nashville after a man broke out of the plane’s bathroom door and spoke very loudly in Arabic. The affidavit goes on to say the suspect’s actions “caused extreme concern for passengers and the flight crew.”

The report states the plane’s Captain chose to divert the flight to Nashville where the plane made a safe landing and the man was arrested.

The suspect, Mohammed Nasser Aldoseri, 26, had slurred speech and was unsteady on his feet according to the affidavit. When airport police got to him he was passed out in his seat.

Aldoseri told police he had already gotten sick after drinking eight lemon drop shooters in Cincinnati before he got on the plane.

Aldoseri has been charged with public intoxication and disorderly conduct.

The United flight continued to Houston after a brief delay in Nashville. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
