Clay Aiken got involved in an airplane spat, it has been reported. The 2003 "American Idol" runner-up got involved in a dispute with a female passenger Saturday July 7th, during a flight to Tulsa International Airport.

The dispute took place on a Continental Airlines flight when Aiken was traveling morning that day for an evening performance at the Brady Theater. Speaking on that encounter, FBI Special Agent Gary Johnson said there was a dispute between a male passenger and a woman on the flight but won't confirm the passenger was Aiken. He explained the dispute was over the male passenger's foot resting on the woman's armrest.

Johnson confirmed there was an allegation the woman gave the male passenger a "minor shove" during the argument, saying "At that point the flight crew was able to resolve the situation".

Tulsa Airport Authority spokeswoman Alexis Higgins, meanwhile, said the two passengers were held until FBI agents arrived to interview them. No injuries were reported and no arrests were made.
