Hawaiian Airlines flight #7 was a few miles off the Southern California coast when a 66-year-old passenger requested a blanket and was told the cost would be $12, according to Los Angeles Airport police.
The 66-year-old man had gotten into an argument with the crew over the blanket's price tag aboard the flight from Las Vegas to Honolulu on Wednesday, said Rob Pedregon, a spokesman for the Los Angeles Airport Police Department.
A man who caused a Hawaiian Airlines flight to be diverted after he refused to pay $12 for a blanket, was caught on video as police officers escorted him off the plane.
The man asked crew members for the number to corporate.
The man had asked to speak to company representatives, arguing that he should not have to pay for the blanket because it was cold, the LA times reported.
LA Airport Police and the Federal Bureau of Investigation met the aircraft at the gate once it landed in LA.

Peace talks produce 'clear agenda' for war-scarred Syria
Speaking at the end of the talks Friday, the United Nations mediator conceded that for the moment face-to-face talks are unlikely. They would include a new constitution, UN-supervised elections and transparent and accountable governance, as well as terrorism.
"After questioning the parties involved, we determined no crime was committed, and there was no direct threat", Pedregon told CNN.
He was allowed to book another flight to his destination. "I'm going to call the president", Enriques said.
His name was not released.
"Diverting a flight is clearly not our first choice, but our crew felt it was necessary in this case to divert to Los Angeles and deplane the passenger before beginning to fly over the Pacific Ocean". The flight attendant said the cabin was "on secured lock-down".
"I thought it was ridiculous", witness Eileen Bernstrom told the news station.
But not all passengers agreed with the airline's decision.
