Federal agents boarded an American Airlines jet at Albuquerque International Airport on Wednesday and arrested a man who allegedly struck matches while the plane was en route from New York to Los Angeles. TSA was notified of the incident, and the captain made an emergency landing in Albuquerque. The FAA says there was no bomb threat, and the man was apparently trying to smoke. Canines swept the aircraft out of an "abundance of caution" before the flight was allowed to continue to LAX.
