A passenger was arrested and banned by United Airlines after terrorizing Orlando International Airport’s gate 46 on Thursday. He was tasered and taken into custody, but has since bonded out of jail.
According to the affidavit supporting the man’s arrest, he assaulted a passenger and a United gate agent. Video taken by another passenger shows the 34 year old man from New York yelling threats and obscenities.
The man can be heard shouting, “Nobody touch me, I’m gonna put on a mother(expletive) show…I had a couple drinks before a (expletive) flight.”
Eventually, the man can be seen blocking the door to the gangway, before banging on the door and trying to force his way back in.
The man threatens someone off-camera shouting, “I’m going to kill you,” and orders people to stay away, the video shows.
…[An] officer then tackles the man to the ground in the video. Police said a bystander helped the officer as he struggled with Martin on the ground.
After being tased he’s taken away in a wheelchair. He faces charges “of child abuse, disorderly intoxication, domestic violence, battery and resisting an officer with violence.”
In his defense, he was in Florida, and I’m not even sure those things are crimes there.
