A man onboard a flight on Sunday night was removed from the plane by law enforcement, who had to employ a taser to get him to comply after he allegedly started an altercation with a couple seated near him and became unruly.
A couple seated on American Airlines flight 2446 reportedly had an encounter with another passenger when the woman alleged that the stranger had inappropriately touched her. The accusation caused an argument between the couple and the man, who was later identified as 28-year-old Jacob Garcia of Chicago.
The airline manager intervened and in an attempt to diffuse the situation he assigned Garcia to a new seat away from the people with whom he had the dispute. Garcia was reported as making racially insensitive comments toward the couple after being asked to move.
