(CHICAGO) — A United Airlines flight from New Jersey to Denver was diverted to Chicago on Sunday after two passengers fought over a seat recliner.

A man in a middle seat in Economy Plus put a device called a Knee Defender — that prevents the seat in front from reclining — on his tray table.

The device angered the woman in front of him, and when the two began arguing, she allegedly threw a cup of water in his face.

The two passengers were removed from the plane in Chicago before the flight continued to Denver. No arrests were made.
