Info from Julia Scorupco:
A couple got into an altercation on an American Airlines flight from Miami to Los Angeles (7/21/19) when the woman’s partner looked at another woman. She then slammed a laptop on his head, and a passenger and flight attendant ended up in the crossfire. The couple were kicked off the flight, and an EMT came on board to check on those injured - the flight attendant went home (we had to wait for a replacement), while the passenger was fine to fly. This happened right before takeoff, and the flight was delayed 2 hours. A woman on the flight claimed to have seen them fighting already at the gate. I am not 100% positive that she got arrested, but a flight attendant on board claimed she had been upon exiting. Everyone on the flight was a bit shaken, but we were grateful that it happened before takeoff as opposed to in the air. The airline handled the situation well and removed both passengers fairly quickly. Although us passengers would’ve appreciated free alcohol after witnessing a situation like that! Disclaimer: I did not record this video - another woman on the flight airdropped it to my brother and I on the plane. Unfortunately, I don’t have the woman’s contact info. At the end of the day, I don't have all the details on what prompted the situation or how they treat one another in private, so I can only discuss what I saw and am not in a place to judge. She made many malicious and racist comments about the man's upbringing, background and heritage — most of which wasn’t recorded — so it was hard to watch (especially knowing there were so many children on board). There is absolutely no excuse for physical abuse. Another note: the woman does not say she "consumed" a child, but that she "consoled" a child. This is in reference to the fact that, before the altercation, she consoled a baby (not her own) on the flight who was crying. They were clearly unfit for the exit row.
