Allegheny County police officers removed a passenger from an American Airlines flight Monday at Pittsburgh International Airport after crew members said the man was being disruptive.

The man was removed about noon for disruptive behavior and failing to comply with crew members' instructions, said American spokesman Kent Powell. The Airbus 319 was a US Airways jet headed for Charlotte, Powell said.

Allegheny County police could not be reached for comment. A video taken by a passenger shows officers escorting the man off the plane.
