SEATTLE —

A Port of Seattle spokesman says a man has been arrested for allegedly exposing himself to flight attendants during a Southwest Airlines flight from Albuquerque, N.M., to Seattle.

Spokesman Perry Cooper says the man was taken into custody once the flight landed in Seattle.

He says the exposure in Southwest flight 265 happened over another state so Seattle authorities are handing the man over to the FBI.

No other details, such as his age or hometown, were readily available about the arrested passenger.

The incident did not cause a delay and the flight landed on time.

Southwest Airlines says the passenger's "behavior" prompted the captain to request authorities meet the airplane at the gate.

Flight 265 was carrying 126 passengers and a crew of five.
