DENVER — Officials say one person was taken into custody following a "possible security threat" on a Denver-bound flight.
Denver International Airport spokeswoman Laura Coale says Frontier Airlines flight 601 from Knoxville, Tenn., landed safely at 7:30 p.m. MDT Friday and was moved to a remote location.
She says in a recorded statement that the FBI and police responded due to "a possible security threat on board," and one person was taken into custody.
