swA Southwest flight on Tuesday was diverted after a Texas man on board played an unwanted game of “footsie” with a female passenger sitting next to him and got into a confrontation with the flight crew, authorities said.

Justin Riley Brafford, 29, remains in federal custody in New Mexico and faces felony interference with a flight crew and a misdemeanor assault charge, the Dallas Morning News reported.

Authorities said the woman leaned away but Brafford got closer and began trying to play “footsie” with her.

An FBI report said M.W. told Brafford to stop kicking and bothering her, and that he asked her to go out after the flight, the Albuquerque Journal reported.

Brafford allegedly responded to her by whispering “don’t [expletive] with me.”

When M.W. moved to a new seat Brafford tried going over to the woman with a drink. A flight attendant spoke to him, causing him to go from ”zero to sixty in nano-seconds,” the complaint said.
