A Delta Air Lines flight from Boston to Newark, New Jersey, returned to Massachusetts on Sunday after a passenger allegedly threatened the safety of the fight, according to police. 

Flight 5770 – operated by Republic Airways – returned to Boston Logan International Airport to “facilitate the removal of a passenger,” a spokesperson for Republic Airlines told FOX Business. 

Massachusetts State Police said in a statement that an anonymous caller reported to New Jersey police that a passenger on board had “made threats related to the safety of the flight.”
