  • Police taze 'combative' American Airlines passenger (VIDEO)

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. Passengers can be seen clapping and cheering as Garcia is escorted through the airport. Flight attendants tried to diffuse the situation by moving Garcia to another seat, but the Chicago resident "began to scream and insult (the woman). and her boyfriend".

A man was tasered and arrested on Sunday night aboard an American Airlines flight departing from Miami after allegedly touching another passenger inappropriately, according to Miami-Dade police. Throughout the ordeal, Garcia struggles with the officers despite one's warning "don't fight me", resulting in the use of the taser.

When Garcia still refused to walk off the plane, officers carried him out all while yelling at the officers and other passengers.

Video taken of the incident shows a man continuously asking why he is being removed from the plane, even after being stunned with a Taser. Due to Mr. Garcia's clothing, one prong penetrated the area of his abdomen and the other to his clothing.

Llerena said that during the struggle with officers, Garcia attempted to reach for one of the officer's gun but was unable to remove it from the holster.

[The flight crew] began the process of deplaning the entire aircraft.

Garcia further delayed his departure - as well as the flight's - by entwining his legs with the aircraft seats.

Three officers came onboard the aircraft to arrest Garcia, but he "began to resist and pull away", Miami New Times reports.

The statement says during that process, a physical altercation broke out between the two passengers.

American Airlines has issued a statement revealing that the man was subsequently arrested.

Police officials told ABC 7 Chicago that Jacob Garcia was charged with battery, disorderly conduct, criminal mischief, resisting an officer, and depriving an officer of means of protection.
