Police just walked Delta FA off plane in handcuffs

DL 99 from Paris arrived delayed in DTW around 2.30 today. On board 2 family members of mine. At gate 2 officers tell FA to make everyone sit down again. Eventually that happens. Captain asks what's going on. They proceed to tell one FA to get his bag, then they cuff him and walk him off the plane. Preceding were some arguments among FAs, nothing more known.

US customs/immigration, FBI, or DPD?

Why can't the news media be as clear and concise as the OP?

I predict we'll hear nothing from Delta. Perhaps the OP's relatives can write in to complain they were inconvenienced by the delay in disembarking "so that the police could arrest a Delta employee"? I think that one is on Delta.

Not completely sure, they saw two XL sized uniforms that looked like regular police plus a border patrol officer close by.

Makes some sense. Technically till they've entered the country, US Immigration and Cudtoms would be responsible. Thus would need one with them to perform an arrest. Curious what FA is charged with. I know AF just had an FA arrested in Paris for stealing from the F/J passengers while they slept.

Well the US no longer has a federal law against flight crew members seducing female passengers, so that can't be the cause of this.

Well OP stated that "They proceed to tell one FA to get his bag".

Looks like the airline has confirmed it:

After the plane arrived at the gate, the flight attendant was “taken into custody,” the airline spokesperson said.

Delta declined to identify the employee.

“There is no indication that this action was related to crew, passenger or aircraft safety or security of this flight,” spokeswoman Kate Modolo told TVR.

How could have an international plane landed at gate 2???? That isn't a gate with stairs going down to customs

Need to re-read the OP. Never said at gate 2. Said "At gate 2 officers..." Also no such thing as a Gate 2. There's an A2, B2, C2, and D2.

Plane arrived at A60.
