Passenger arrested after seen punching a flight attendant

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — A man has been arrested after allegedly punching a flight attendant during a flight from Mexico to Los Angeles.

Passengers and crew members restrained the man, who was caught on video slugging an American Airlines flight attendant. The incident happened on a flight from San Jose del Cabo in Mexico to Los Angeles International Airport.

Video posted by another passenger shows the man punching a male flight attendant in the back of the head or neck as the crew member walks in the aisle.
