A man was taken into custody after opening the emergency exit of a plane and jumping onto its wing after the flight landed in Florida, according to police.

On Wednesday, an American Airlines flight from Colombia had just landed at the Miami International Airport around 7:30 p.m. when a passenger opened an exit door and walked onto the aircraft's wing, the Miami-Dade Police Department said, per CBSMiami.

Police say the American man, Christian Segura, 33, was detained by agents from U.S. Customs and Border Protection and taken into custody by the MDPD, Local News10 reports.

Despite the incident at the airport, the remaining passengers on the flight were not delayed and reportedly able to exit the plane without issue.
