Garcia was later brought to Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center where he was charged with battery, depriving and officer of a firearm, criminal mischief and disorderly conduct, officials said.

According to the arrest report, American Airlines manager Jose Biaggi dealt with a female passenger's improper touching accusation by moving Garcia to another seat.

Police said an airline manager reported 28-year-old Jacob Garcia, of Chicago, had touched a female passenger without her permission, and when he was asked to move to another seat, he began screaming at the woman and her boyfriend. Police said Garcia resisted as officers tried to handcuff him, prompting one of the officers to repeatedly use a stun gun to subdue him.

The roughly two-minute recording shows Garcia fighting officers and trying to swat away the taser.

An officer eventually used a Taser on Garcia, but Garcia was not subdued after its first use, and attempts to swat it from the officer's hand before Garcia called him "a little baby".

In video obtained by another passenger, which has since been verified by the airline, Garcia is seen being held back by several officers while shouting at them, "Listen!" Finally, police had enough and Tased him.

An officer then reaches for his Taser from his belt.

But while taking him out of the terminal, police say Garcia went limp.

'We will cooperate with the Miami-Dade Police Department on this matter. He kept asking why they were removing him.

[The flight crew] began the process of deplaning the entire aircraft. During that process, a physical altercation between the same two passengers took place.

American Airlines said in its statement it followed its normal procedures after the "disagreement" between passengers broke out, and said the flight departed with the remaining passengers about an hour after the scheduled time.

According to passengers, the man captured on camera started arguing with other people on board the plane and ended up getting in a fight with Miami-Dade Police. We thank our crews and airport customer service team for their excellent work in this situation'.
