Emergency slide deploys on Spurs charter plane

SAN ANTONIO (AP) An emergency slide accidentally deployed on the San Antonio Spurs charter plane and delayed the team's flight to Cleveland to face the Cavaliers on Wednesday night.

KSAT-TV (http://bit.ly/1AhlFaK ) reports Tuesday's incident involved a Delta Air Lines jet on the ground. The slide deployed from the side used by service vendors.

The incident delayed the Spurs' departure by about four hours as Delta provided a replacement plane.
