Passengers at Florida’s Orlando International Airport applauded as police officers escorted a violent man out of a terminal on Sunday, October 21.
This video captured by eyewitness Samantha Farmer shows the scene next to gate 3 in Terminal A.
According to eyewitnesses, the “drunk man” was involved in a scuffle with a JetBlue employee. Police officers later arrived and deployed pepper spray, but the stench of pepper spray made fellow travellers cough.
In a statement to Storyful, a spokesman for JetBlue said: “Authorities were requested by crew members at Orlando International Airport after a customer was denied boarding for intoxication and became disruptive.”
