Man Kicked Off Charlotte Douglas Flight – Fights With Air Traffic Control (Video)


This past week, a Charlotte resident captured some rather shocking footage on her cell phone of a man fighting with air traffic control after he was kicked off his flight.

On Monday, Feb. 26th, Kelly Smekens recorded the following video of a disruptive passenger who got kicked off a Cincinnati-bound flight departing from Charlotte Douglas International Airport;

Smekens said that airline officials had asked the man to leave the flight over his behavior. Once off the airplane, the man stripped to the waisted and squared off with airport personnel. Video from another passenger shows the man punched one of the airport workers in the confrontation on the tarmac.

American Airlines flight number AA5466 was set to leave at 1:29 pm local time but departed almost 40 minutes later due to the incident with the passenger.
