A court appearance for the man accused of causing a plane to make an unscheduled landing in Denver is being postponed until at least tomorrow.
Authorities arrested Jose Manuel Pelayo-Ortega on Friday after he allegedly claimed there was a bomb aboard United Airlines Flight 735, and tried to open one of the plane's doors.
FBI spokeswoman Monique Kelso says the defendant's first court appearance was expected to take place this morning, but a paperwork delay will push that back to Tuesday, perhaps later.
The Airbus A-320 was carrying 138 passengers and six flight crew members from Chicago to Sacramento.
Passengers and three Secret Service agents subdued the suspect until the plane landed.
No bomb was found, and passengers were allowed to continue the flight
