A Southwest Airlines flight from Orlando to Providence made an unscheduled stop in South Carolina. Southwest spokes­woman Whitney Eichinger said Flight 3814 made an emergency landing at Charleston International Airport Tuesday night after what she called a misunderstanding between a flight ­attendant and a passenger over where to put a piece of luggage. She said that the man and two people he was traveling with were removed from the plane and questioned by authorities. No charges were filed.
