A man aboard an American Airlines flight from Miami to Chicago Sunday night had to be shocked with a Taser and forcibly removed by police after allegedly assaulting another passenger.

Before departing, someone on the flight contacted the authorities, accusing Jacob A. Garcia of touching a woman inappropriately, the Miami-Dade Police Department told NBC News.

The article goes on to state the following:

The flight crew then began deplaning the aircraft after Garcia refused to get off on his own. During this process, he got into a physical altercation with another passenger and police had to intervene, according to a statement released by American Airlines.

Three officers came onboard the aircraft to arrest Garcia, but he “began to resist and pull away,” Miami New Times reports. Video of the incident was posted on social media, which shows Garcia fighting against the officers and refusing to get off the plane.

Garcia can be heard asking the officers, “What is the reason why you are removing me from this plane?” several times as he struggles against being detained.

“Well you just assaulted a lady, for one. You’re a racist for two,” another passenger says.
