Airline: Passenger removed after physical altercation on Miami flight to Chicago

Police taze 'combative' American Airlines passenger (VIDEO)

American Airlines passenger Jacob Garcia was arrested after touching a female passenger inappropriately and resisting efforts to remove him from the aircraft, the Miami-Dade Police said. American Airlines says the man and another passenger got into an argument and that's when the crew asked the man to deplane.

In a statement American Airlines said: 'American began the process of deplaning the entire aircraft. Flight attendants then asked Garcia to move to another seat, but instead of cooperating, he reportedly "began to scream [at] and insult" the couple, provoking a physical argument.

Footage shows Garcia being carried onto a golf cart in the Miami International Airpot terminal by police after passengers were taken off the flight.

Garcia still refused to disembark. When one officer tried to lift Garcia up, he reached for the officer's handgun repeatedly.

The taser doesn't appear to affect Garcia - at first - who mocks the officer by calling him a "baby" and he tries to snatch the device out of the officer's hand.
