Police taze ‘combative’ American Airlines passenger

Separately, the Miami New Times offered more details about the altercation, stating that Garcia allegedly groped the girlfriend of one of his fellow passengers. "Once law enforcement was on the aircraft, the passenger then became combative with the officers from the Miami-Dade Police Department", the airline statement read.

Police said, as officers were trying to remove Garcia from the plane after handcuffing him, he wedged his legs and body in his seat, and locked his feet around the legs of seats on the plane. "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".

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.

During the transportation of Garcia from the plane to the terminal, officers had to carry him while he verbally chastised everyone around.

Cellphone video posted online shows passengers clapping and cheering as Garcia is walked through the airport struggling against the police officers.

When cops got to Row 13, Garcia kept pulling away from them. The same passenger was subsequently arrested by law enforcement. When police brought in a golf cart to take him outside, Garcia allegedly slumped to the ground to impede the officers.

Bucks Hammer Celtics For Playoff Win
Bledsoe, outplayed by Rozier in the first two games, shot 8 of 13. "There's nothing that he did differently today", Rozier said. Rozier may have overachieved in the first two games, but he should still have a better showing than this one for Game 4.


The Chicago-bound aircraft was still at the gate at Miami International Airport, so passengers were ordered to deplane as police officers were called in. When one officer tried to lift Garcia up, he reached for the officer's handgun repeatedly.

He shouted: 'Listen what is the reason why you're removing me from this plane?'

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

By that time, Miami-Dade police were called.

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.
