It was SkyWest flIght 5573 operating SFO-SAT for United Express. No reason was given other than calling it an "on-board threat". Passengers were offloaded and questioned and the aircraft was swept by the FBI, TSA, and Phoenix Police. No passengers were arrested or detained and the aircraft continued to SAT arriving around midnight.
