American Airlines passenger tased after argument

Police then asked Garcia to leave Flight 2446, which was waiting to take off from Miami to Chicago, but he refused.

In February, an American Airlines passenger was detained after chasing airport employees on the tarmac at Charlotte Douglas International Airport.

When Garcia was carried by law enforcement officers from the aircraft other passengers clapped and cheered.

After Garcia was moved to another seat by crew members, he began verbally attacking the couple before flight attendants called on security to escort the misbehaving passenger from the plane.

A passenger captured video of the altercation between Garcia and authorities.

Garcia reacted by screaming insults at the woman and her boyfriend, the police report said.

Video shared by Jabari Ennis shows another angle of the man fighting against three officers.

He was then hit with repeated rounds of the Taser until he was finally subdued and handcuffed. According to the arrest report, Garcia continued to resist efforts to move him from the aircraft to a police vehicle.

Llerena said that during the struggle with officers, Garcia attempted to reach for one of the officer's gun but was unable to remove it from the holster.

Video shot inside the terminal shows the man still arguing with officers as they load him onto a security golf cart.

In the clip, Garcia can be seen grappling with the burly officers.

An American Airlines passenger had to be shocked with a Taser and forcibly removed from a flight after allegedly assaulting another passenger.

The airline said the crew followed procedure and began deplaning, but that's when a physical altercation between the same two passengers occurred.

Garcia's return to Chicago will be even further behind schedule - he was booked into Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center on charges of battery, disorderly conduct, resisting an officer without violence, criminal mischief and attempting to deprive an officer with means of protection.

The flight was delayed just over an hour due to the incident, and "all remaining passengers" made it to Chicago.
