The plane had just landed and, according to the police, positioned itself at the gate.
The passenger, a man, was arrested by U.S. Customs and Border Protection, police said.
The passenger told police that he was not feeling well, WPLG reported.
He was taken to an emergency room “after paramedics found he had high blood pressure,” the partner said.
Miami-Dade police will take the man to jail after he is released from hospital, WPLG reported.
