  • Police taze 'combative' American Airlines passenger (VIDEO)

Before takeoff, the boyfriend of the woman Garcia allegedly groped, informed authorities that his girlfriend was being inappropriately touched, cops say.

The incident happened on an American Airlines flight travelling from Miami to Chicago.

When Garcia was carried by law enforcement officers from the aircraft other passengers clapped and cheered.

Police said, as officers were trying to remove Garcia from the plane after handcuffing him, he wedged his legs and body in his seat, and locked his feet around the legs of seats on the plane.

The flight, scheduled to leave at 9:30 p.m., left at 10:34 p.m. with all passengers except Garcia, American Airlines said.

A man was hit with a Taser on an American Airlines flight after he allegedly fondled a female passenger. Because the plane bound for Chicago hadn't yet departed the gate, crew members and police officers asked Garcia to evacuate the plane.

Someone can then be heard saying: 'Well you just assaulted a lady for one, you're racist for two'.

In the clip, Garcia can be seen grappling with the burly officers.

A second video shared on Twitter by traveler Kaitlin Waters shows Garcia continuing to be combative with officers as they escort him from the terminal.

Unable to gain control of Garcia, one of the police officers tells him unsuccessfully, "Do not fight". After about 15 minutes, they walked him out.

"American began the process of deplaning the entire aircraft". At first, the taser did not affect Garcia and he attempted to take the taser away, but it eventually worked and the officers were able to take Garcia into custody.

American said the passenger was ultimately arrested by law enforcement officials.

"Why am I being removed from this plane?" he asked in one of the videos, while being Tased.

The airline said it was cooperating with the police investigation.

Police said 28-year-old Jacob Garcia has been charged with battery, depriving an officer of means of protection, disorderly conduct, resisting an officer and criminal mischief. We thank our crews and airport customer service team for their excellent work in this situation'.
