United Airlines says it has compensated all of its passengers that were on a flight from Denver to Williston Thursday afternoon after a "concerning incident" involving a flight attendant arose.

The incident happened aboard Trans States Airlines flight 4689.

Twitter user Erika Gorman described the incident saying, "Drunk and disorderly—belligerent flight attendant. Boarding announcements were 'if your seatbelt isn't tight, you F^*%ed up.' I went to the cockpit and talked to the captain and police were waiting when we landed."

The Williston Police Department confirmed that they did respond to the airport for a call for service. A press release from the department said, "It was determined that the occupant was intoxicated. The Williston Police Department conducted an investigation and the investigation has been forwarded to the FBI. At this time, no one is in custody relating to this call for service"
