Cop pulls gun on passenger during brawl at Miami International Airport in viral video
In a shocking incident, a Miami cop pulled his gun at an unruly man, who caused a commotion after a charter flight was delayed at Miami International Airport. The passenger started wrestling with the cop with a raging crowd in the vicinity.
The incident took place on Monday, December 20, and a video of the same has gone viral now. In the video, a cop could be seen trying to retreat from a fight at the Miami International Airport despite being punched multiple times.
In the video, the cop was seen drawing his weapon, which resulted in shouts and gasps from other travelers present in the airport premises at that time. The officer grabbed the unruly passenger but the passenger somehow escaped. He returned to attack the police officer. This creates panic among passengers who were part of the brawled crowd at the Miami International Airport. The police officer was then seen trying to call for backup from the police department. Once the backup officers arrived, they successfully calmed the crowd down. The two unruly passengers are taken into custody but the charges are still pending.
According to the Miami Police Department, two individuals were involved in creating the ruckus. The havoc makers were then taken into custody.
Following the incident that sparked after the delay of the charter flight, Attorney General Merrick Garland told the prosecutors to focus only on the incidents that revolve around these unruly passengers. According to a CBS Local report, a passenger had taken the keys as he wanted to transport a golf cart and the passenger did not allow the officer to leave.

CEO Ralph Cutie said, "Like airports across the country, MIA is seeing record-high passenger numbers this winter travel season. Unfortunately, that passenger growth has come with a record-high increase nationwide in bad behavior as well, such as the incident this evening at MIA. Disruptive passengers face police arrest, civil penalties up to $37,000, being banned from flying, and potential federal prosecution. We have worked so hard to rebound from the pandemic and make traveling safe again, so we can visit our loved ones."
