A passenger got kicked off a Southwest Airlines flight because he was acting erratically. He then tried to get back on board by running onto the aircraft before being tackled by a crewmember. 

The plane was headed to Chicago from Las Vegas on Monday evening. 

According to CBS Chicago, passengers on the flight said that after boarding for the first time, the man locked himself in the restroom and refused to get out. Eventually, crew members were able to get the man to leave the plane bathroom and he was kicked off the flight.

The man tried again to get back onboard, and reportedly ran back onto the plane while screaming. A Southwest employee was able to subdue the man by zip-tying him to a seat while the crew waited for the police to arrive.
