American Airlines said in a statement that law enforcement met the plane upon landing in Honolulu following a "disturbance" on the flight.

A source at the TSA told ABC News that the man was waiting for the bathroom near the cockpit when a flight attendant asked him to sit down. He had a laptop with him and appeared to try the cockpit door before he was subdued, the source said.

Flight 31 from Los Angeles landed safely at 11:35 a.m. local time, according to American Airlines.

The incident is under investigation.
