An American Airlines flight from Los Angeles to New York City was forced to make an emergency landing in Kansas City Thursday due to an unruly passenger, authorities said. A female passenger was handcuffed and escorted off the plane by a federal air marshal after she disrupted the flight by belting out Whitney Houston songs.
