U.S. flight diverted over security concern

(CNN) - A US Airways flight on its way to Dallas returned to Philadelphia on Thursday for security reasons, the Federal Aviation Administration said.

Investigators took a passenger into custody, but he appears to have been the victim of a hoax, police in Philadelphia said.

Police said an investigation determined that there was no security threat.
