Man tasered on AA flight after allegedly fondling female passenger

Chaos delayed an American Airlines flight from Miami to Chicago Sunday night when police had to used a Taser while forcibly removing a man who was harassing fellow passengers and being combative, WPLG-Ch.

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

According to a report from ABC 7 Chicago, a witness was able to capture the incident on video, where a man identified as 28-year-old Chicago resident Jacob Garcia got into an altercation with another passenger. Throughout the ordeal, Garcia struggles with the officers despite one's warning "don't fight me", resulting in the use of the taser.

A flight attendant moved Garcia to a seat away from the couple but he then "started making louder racial slurs", Ennis said.

When Miami-Dade Police tried to remove Garcia from the plane, he locked his legs around a seat and refused. The aircraft was still at the gate in Miami, and the instigating passenger was asked by our Miami team members to deplane and he refused.

In the videos, the man repeatedly asked why he was being removed from the plane as passengers asked for him to be removed and even clapped when he was finally taken off. According to police officers, Garcia caused $150 worth of damage to a police cruiser window after he was arrested.

[The flight crew] began the process of deplaning the entire aircraft.

The plane left an hour late. "The same passenger was subsequently arrested by law enforcement", read a statement from American Airlines. We will cooperate with the Miami-Dade Police Department on this matter.
