Plane passenger was repeatedly Tasered after being told to leave a flight

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.

Garcia had boarded a flight from Miami to Chicago on Sunday and touched the passenger without her permission, police said. Her boyfriend contacted the police when Garcia wouldn't stop, who intervened when he refused to deplane at the request of the flight staff.

"American began the process of deplaning the entire aircraft", American Airlines said in a statement. "Once law enforcement was on the aircraft, the passenger then became combative with the officers from the Miami-Dade Police Department", American Airlines said in a statement.

According to a report from ABC 7 Chicago, a witness was able to capture the incident on video, where a man identified as 28-year-old Chicago resident Jacob Garcia got into an altercation with another passenger.

A man was arrested after being tased aboard an American Airlines flight last night.

"What is the reason why you are removing me from the plane?" he asks.

Video shared by Jabari Ennis shows another angle of the man fighting against three officers.
