Video captures disruptive passenger being kicked off American Airlines flight

The incident happened prior to the scheduled 9:30 p.m. Sunday departure of Flight 2446, WPLG-Ch.

The plane was still at the gate when crew members tried to get Garcia to get off.

"American began the process of deplaning the entire aircraft. Once law enforcement was on the aircraft, the passenger then became combative with the officers from the Miami-Dade Police Department", American Airlines said in a statement.

Kaitlin Waters, who was heading back home on the flight, said: "I was towards the front and already on the jet bridge, but multiple police had to tase this guy multiple times before he was dragged off".

During the transportation of Garcia from the plane to the terminal, officers had to carry him while he verbally chastised everyone around.

"Well you just assaulted a lady, for one".

Garcia continues to resist as the officer who warned Garcia reaches for a taser on his belt.

Once Garcia had been escorted off the plane, he collapsed to the ground in an attempt to slow down the officers' efforts, police said. "Go on, Taser me", Ennis quoted him as saying - and then he allegedly grabbed the officer's stun gun.

One officer in the video struggles with Garcia, gripping him around the neck, to try and control him while two other officers work on handcuffing him.


The airline said it was cooperating with the police investigation. "Due to Mr. Garcia's actions and the close quarters of the engagement, Officer Desroches was unable to holster his ECW, which caused the number of cycles".

A man was arrested after being repeatedly Tasered on board an aircraft for allegedly touching another passenger inappropriately and making racial slurs.

The flight to O'Hare was delayed about an hour.

Garcia was later brought to Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center where he was charged with battery, depriving and officer of a firearm, criminal mischief and disorderly conduct, officials said.
