ALBUQUERQUE, New Mexico -- A Southwest flight made an emergency landing over an unwanted game of "footsie."
Police arrested a 29-year-old man who kept inching closer towards his seat mate and rubbing her leg with his foot.
A flight attendant allowed the unwilling footsie participant to switch seats - but the man followed her to her new seat.
The pilot decided to divert the plane to land in Albuquerque, when the man began to verbally harass the woman and a flight attendant.
Once the man was removed, the flight continued on to Dallas, Southwest said.
The man is now facing charges including simple assault and interfering and intimidating members of a flight crew and flight attendants while on an aircraft.
