A pair of Denver parents were flying to Baltimore and were upset when "Alex Cross" was being shown as United's in-flight movie. Worried that the film, which is rated PG-13, would be too violent for their small children, they asked a flight attendant if their monitors could be turned off. The attendant said that it wouldn't be possible, so the parents asked if the pilot had any authority to address the situation. And address it he did: He announced that the flight was being diverted to Chicago because of a "security concerns." Minutes after landing at O'Hare, the family was escorted off the plane by a police officer, who was reportedly "incredulous" over the pilot's overreaction.
Note: they did distract the kids while this was going on.
