BANZAI7 NEWS--A man accused of attempting to open an airplane's exterior door while in flight has been released after investigators determined it wasn't a terrorism matter, authorities said Sunday.

The incident occurred Saturday on a United Airlines jetliner en route from Washington, D.C., to Las Vegas. The plane, which had more than 100 people aboard, was diverted to Denver International Airport.

Passengers told Las Vegas television station KTNV-TV after the plane landed that the man said he was a Senator from Massachusetts and needed to get back to Washington for Bernanke's confirmation vote.
