Police Taser, Arrest Man Accused of Fondling Passenger on Plane

Jacob Garcia                       MIAMI DADE POLICE DEPT

American Airlines said flight 2446, headed to Chicago's O'Hare airport, left at 10:34 p.m. Sunday, an hour behind schedule, with all scheduled passengers minus Jacob Garcia.

After the altercation, police offers were called to the scene and Garcia was asked to exit the aircraft, but he refused and resisted the officers' efforts to remove him, police said.

Miami-Dade police were called to the plane while it was still at the gate in Miami, after a manager reported that Jacob Garcia, 28, had touched another passenger, according to an arrest report.

In the videos, the man repeatedly asked why he was being escorted off, as passengers asked for him to be removed and even clapped when he was finally taken off.

Separately, the Miami New Times offered more details about the altercation, stating that Garcia allegedly groped the girlfriend of one of his fellow passengers. Twitter poster Jabari Ennis (@PoleVaultDream) tweeted that Garcia "was harassing passengers and saying racial slurs to several people on board, including employees".

The roughly two-minute recording shows Garcia fighting officers and trying to swat away the taser. They then made a decision to remove him and called the police'.




"Do not fight." The officer then grabs a Taser and shocks Garcia ten times until they are able to handcuff him, according to the Times.

Garcia was forcibly removed from an American Airlines plane Sunday night after allegedly assaulting another passenger.

"American began the process of deplaning the entire aircraft".

American said the passenger was ultimately arrested by law enforcement officials.

RT.com has reached out to the Miami Dade Police Department for further details. The flight originated in Miami and was scheduled to land in Chicago.

Jail records showed Garcia was in custody Monday morning at a Miami-Dade County facility, facing charges of battery, depriving an officer of a weapon, disorderly conduct, resisting an officer and criminal mischief.
