What's The Deal With FLG611A?

Flightaware shows FLG611A as just circling southeast of MSP and then returning to the airport, but nwa.com shows it as still going to XNA. I think I saw this plane as I was outside my house in that area and it looked rediculously [sic?] low. Flightaware shows it at 4000 and says it's landed back at MSP. Possibly an engine out or something causing it to hold for a little bit and then return to the airport. It seems that it never got above 4000 feet. Is this real or is it a flightaware fluke?

Looks like a field return to me. They happen on occasion.

nwa.com is now saying it looks like a diversion due to a mechanical problem, but as that plane went past my house, it looked low and at a slight nose-down attitude. It almost looked like it was going down but it wasn't. It looked more like it was at 2000 ft but I guess it was 4000. Can anyone from Pinnacle or NW get details on what the problem was (engine out, gear not retracting, etc)?

She's on her way down to XNA now.
