A veteran says he nearly got kicked off an Alaska Airlines flight because of his prosthetic leg.
According to WJLA, Adam Popp of Washington, D.C., was told he wasn't allowed to sit in the exit row because of his leg.
He says the flight attendant forced him to move, threatening to have security take him off the plane.
Popp tweeted a photo of himself on the flight.

WJLA reports that Alaska Airlines has since apologized, saying it received conflicting guidance from the FAA.
Popp lost his leg to an IED in Afghanistan in 2007.Read more here.
