Las Vegas, NV -- Las Vegas police are investigating a threat made by a passenger on a flight from Las Vegas to Los Angeles.

Airport officials say the pilot radioed ahead and asked for police to meet the plane at the gate and remove one person. 

Police say the passenger was drunk and allegedly made a bomb threat.

He is now in police custody. Officers removed all passengers from the plane as a safety precaution so they could search the aircraft. Clark County Fire officials assisted.
