A JetBlue flight heading to Las Vegas was forced to return to New York Thursday evening.

JetBlue said there was a disturbance between passengers on Flight 611 from John F. Kennedy Airport to McCarran Airport.

"The flight returned to JFK where the aircraft was met by local authorities and the customers were removed," according to a JetBlue statement. "The flight then continued on to its destination."
