Police taze 'combative' American Airlines passenger

According to the arrest report, American Airlines manager Jose Biaggi dealt with a female passenger's improper touching accusation by moving Garcia to another seat.

Separately, the Miami New Times offered more details about the altercation, stating that Garcia allegedly groped the girlfriend of one of his fellow passengers.

A Miami-Dade police report says the flight crew told officers they tried to move Garcia, of Chicago, to another seat, but he continued to be unruly, screaming and insulting the woman and her boyfriend.

A flight attendant notified police that Garcia had been involved in a fight that had broken out while passengers were leaving the plane, so officers were called on board.

In a video captured by another passenger, Garcia can be seen resisting arrest.

None of the officers offer a reply, but one passenger pipes up: "Well, you just assaulted a lady, for one".

At one point, Garcia taunts officers, calling one of them a "baby" and attempting to take the Taser from them. Once inside the airport, the suspect reportedly attempted to grab an officer's handgun, but police brought him into custody safely. Garcia still refused to disembark.

After police had placed Garcia in a patrol vehicle, he kicked one of the rear windows out of alignment, causing about $150 in damage, police said. His bail was set at $9,000.

The airline said the crew followed procedure and began deplaning, but that's when a physical altercation between the same two passengers occurred. Once law enforcement was on the aircraft, the passenger then became combative with the officers from the Miami-Dade Police Department.

Garcia was being held at the Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center in Miami.

ABC 7 Chicago added that the incident caused the American Airlines flight to be delayed for about one hour.

Jacob Garcia is count each of battery, disorderly conduct, resisting arrest, depriving an officer of a firearm, and criminal mischief.

RT.com has reached out to the Miami Dade Police Department for further details.
