Brawl breaks out at Miami International Airport; two in custody…
Video shared on social media appears to show an officer drawing a weapon after a skirmish with several people.
Travelers clashed with police after a brawl broke out Monday night at Miami International Airport, authorities said. Two people were taken into custody.
The scuffle broke out after police were called to Gate H8 shortly after 6:30 p.m. over a disturbance surrounding a delayed charter flight.
Officers found an “unruly passenger” who appeared to have taken the keys to an airport golf cart and was refusing to let a worker leave, police said.
In video shared on social media, a large crowd can be seen surrounding an officer who appears to have his arm around a man’s neck in what appears to be a chokehold.
At least two people start to intervene, appearing to try to release the man from the officer’s grip, as onlookers shout and capture the skirmish on their mobile phones.
Once he is released, the man appears to chase after the officer, striking him multiple times.
