A spokesman said the crew overpowered the 57-year-old passenger and diverted the flight to Amsterdam’s Schiphol airport, where he was taken into custody Sunday
Spokesman Martijn Peelan says the man argued with his wife, and the fight escalated when the crew intervened.
Police are questioning the suspect and several witnesses. News reports say 177 passengers were on the plane.
Peelan says police cannot release details about the detained passenger or the aircraft that was diverted.
