The decision left Big 10 Conference teams out of the championship playoffs for the first time in four years.

Palm Beach County Fire Rescue crews responded to the airport after the plane landed safely at the gate at about 1:07 p.m, according to Capt. Albert Borroto.

The plane -- which was scheduled to land at PBI -- did not need to make an emergency landing, and there are no reports of injuries, Leonard Serratore of PBI said. 

It is unclear if the plane experienced the leak before or after the plane took off from Charlotte. 

In August 2016, a similar incident with an American Airlines plane occurred at PBI in which the plane developed a hydraulic leak on a taxiway. In that instance, 23 passengers and one flight attendant were taken to area hospitals with minor injuries, including burning eyes, itchy skin and difficulty breathing.

Jack Johnson, who died in 1946, was convicted in 1913 for violating the Mann Act, which made it illegal to transport women across state lines for "immoral" purposes.

"His trials and tribulations were great, his life complex and controversial," Trump tweeted Saturday afternoon from Mar-a-Lago. "Others have looked at this over the years, most thought it would be done, but yes, I am considering a Full Pardon!"

Johnson's family has tried to get a posthumous pardon for years. The tweet comes a week after Trump pardoned I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby, a top aide to former Vice President Dick Cheney.
