WASHINGTON (WTVR) – A United Airlines pilot flying to Washington D.C. declared an emergency Thursday night when a passenger on board began praying in the aisle.

CBS is reporting that the plane was escorted by military jets after the emergency was declared.

The flight then landed safely at Dulles International Airport.

So far the man detained has not been charged with a crime.
