Video captures disruptive passenger being kicked off American Airlines flight

"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.

The "disagreement", according to the arrest affidavit started when Garcia touched a female passenger inappropriately without her permission. They said after he was moved to a different seat by flight attendants, he began using racial slurs.

Police used a stun gun multiple times on an unruly American Airlines passenger before removing him from a flight from Miami to Chicago. When Garcia asked why he had to leave, an officer told him, "You just assaulted a lady", according to ABC News.

Police asked Garcia to leave the plane voluntarily, but he "refused to comply and began to cause a disturbance", the arrest report states.

Garcia's return to Chicago will be even further behind schedule - he was booked into Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center on charges of battery, disorderly conduct, resisting an officer without violence, criminal mischief and attempting to deprive an officer with means of protection. Due to Mr. Garcia's clothing, one prong penetrated the area of his abdomen and the other to his clothing.

Despite being Tasered several times by police, Garcia still refused to deplane, and continued acting uncooperatively when he was finally removed from the flight, the New Times added.

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.

The plane left about an hour after its scheduled departure.

"We will cooperate with the Miami-Dade Police Department on this matter".

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

The airline said the crew followed procedure and began deplaning, but that's when a physical altercation between the same two passengers occurred.
