Southwest Flight Diverted After Passenger Tries to Get Into Cockpit

Hmm:
A Southwest flight from L.A. to Kansas City was diverted after a passenger allegedly tried to break into the cockpit.

Witnesses say the man became unruly and started screaming during Flight 3683.

The flight crew made an emergency call to Rick Husband Amarillo International Airport to ask for emergency clearance to land.

The crew of the Southwest jet reported the flight was interrupted when a male passenger tried to break into the cockpit.
I wonder what might have been his motivation? Could this be a clue?

After landing, the passenger, Ali Reza Shahsauri, 29, was arrested by federal authorities on a charge of interference with a flight crew.
Another wannabe jihadi? Maybe.
