4 questioned after plane returns to DIA gate

DENVER (AP) – A United Airlines plane bound from Denver to California returned to the gate at Denver International Airport after a passenger complained about three other passengers.

Denver police spokesman Sonny Jackson says United Airlines Flight 593 from Denver to Santa Ana, Calif., returned to the gate before taking off Thursday around 10 p.m.

Law enforcement officials met the plane at the gate.

Three male passengers whose actions were reportedly suspicious and the male passenger who complained were taken off the plane and questioned separately.

No arrests were made. All four were released early Friday.

Jackson says the captain of the plane returned to the gate after receiving the complaint. United spokesman Charlie Hobart says the airline cooperated with authorities
