An Air Canada Rouge flight from Toronto had to divert to Calgary due to an “extremely unruly passenger” Thursday night Calgary police said.

Police said the Victoria-bound jet landed in Calgary at around 11 p.m. after passengers had to restrain a woman during the flight.

Police said they came aboard and took the woman into custody.
