Passenger fight over reclining seats causes another flight to be diverted

A witness told the news station:

“This woman sitting next to me knitting tried reclining her seat back, the woman behind her started screaming and swearing. The flight attendant came over and that exacerbated what was going on. She demanded the flight land. …

She said something to the effect of, ‘I don’t care about the consequences, put this plane down now.’ She started swearing at the flight attendants and demanding the flight land. The flight attendant spoke to the captain while somebody was blocking her path to the cabin. A few minutes later an announcement came on that we were diverting to Jacksonville.”
