NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

A flight from Nashville to Tampa, Florida, had to be diverted to Birmingham, Alabama, on Friday because of an unruly passenger.

Birmingham police said 25-year-old Logan Polley, of Franklin, Tennessee, assaulted a flight attendant. He was then subdued and restrained by other passengers. The flight attendant was not injured.

Once the plane landed, Polley reportedly became confrontational again when officers tried to remove him from the plane.

According to officers, Polley was highly intoxicated.

He was charged with disorderly conduct and resisting arrest. He has since posted bail.

The plane left and arrived in Tampa an hour behind schedule.
