Unruly passenger Tased on American Airlines fight

Police taze 'combative' American Airlines passenger (VIDEO)

Plane passenger was repeatedly Tasered after being told to leave a flight

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

Chicago's Jacob Garcia, 28, first received special attention after a female passenger accused him if improperly touching her.

When the manager attempted to move Garcia to another seat, he began screaming insults at the passenger and her boyfriend, police said.

Before the American Airlines Chicago-bound flight was due to take off, a man contacted authorities claiming another man, later named as Jacob A. Garcia, was touching his girlfriend inappropriately, a representative for Miami-Dade police told NBC News. American Airlines says the man and another passenger got into an argument and that's when the crew asked the man to deplane.

The Blue Jackets have since been outscored 7-3 by Washington , and their offense doesn't seem to be slowing down any time soon. Four of five games between the teams have gone past regulation making fatigue a factor for Game 6 Monday night in Columbus.

In video obtained by another passenger, which has since been verified by the airline, Garcia is seen being held back by several officers while shouting at them, "Listen!" Finally they got him into a police cruiser, where the police say he "kicked the driver side rear window out of alignment", causing $150 in damage to the vehicle. A stun gun had little effect on him, possibly because it did not attach properly through his clothing, the arrest report said.

American started to deplane the passengers on the aircraft. He was later taken into custody and placed under arrest, charged with five counts including battery, resisting arrest and depriving an officer of their means of protection. The flight was delayed from taking off for more than one hour. During that process, a physical altercation between the two same passengers took place.

RT.com has reached out to the Miami Dade Police Department for further details. The flight, which was scheduled to depart at 9:30 p.m. ET, departed at 10:34 p.m. ET with all remaining passengers. "The same passenger was subsequently arrested by law enforcement.We thank our crews and airport customer service team for their excellent work in this situation".
