An easyJet flight was disrupted and forced to land in Rome after a man upset over a sandwich assaults cabin crew member.

An easyJet flight bound for Kosovo was forced to make an emergency landing Wednesday after a passenger got belligerent and punched a flight attendant.

The man was apparently upset over having to wait for a sandwich, according to local newspaper reports.

The plane, carrying 180 passengers, had taken off from Geneva and was bound for Pristina, the capital of Kosovo.

It touched down in Rome, where police arrested the unruly man.

Travelers were put on another plane later in the afternoon, authorities said.
