On camera, an American Airlines passenger strikes a flight attendant

NewsDesk, Sept 23– After attacking a flight attendant, a passenger on an American Airlines trip from Los Cabos, Mexico, to Los Angeles was detained and given a lifetime ban. A passenger caught the event on camera on Wednesday’s American Airlines flight 377. Later, the smartphone video surfaced on social media and became viral.

The passenger was promptly taken out of the aircraft by Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) agents when the plane touched down at the Los Angeles airport shortly after 3.30 p.m. (local time), according to The Washington Post.

“Do you intend to harm me ?” In a 33-second video making the rounds on Twitter and other social media sites, a male flight attendant asks the consumer. The flight attendant turns around and proceeds up the aisle while the passenger, who is wearing an orange floral shirt, charges from behind and strikes him in the back of the head with his fist.

In the video, other passengers can be heard yelling, “Oh my god.” What are you doing? a traveler asks.

The flight attendant is then shown being rescued by an air hostess after being knocked to the ground. The attacker was detained by other passengers using zip ties until he was removed from the airplane, according to one of the eyewitnesses, who was quoted by the New York Post.

The attacker was identified by the US Justice Department as California resident Alexander Tung Cuu Le, 33. According to the New York Times, he has been charged with one count of interfering with flight crew members and, if found guilty, may spend up to 20 years behind bars.

According to the New York Times, the incident started 20 minutes after Flight 377 departed from Los Cabos Airport. The publication reported that Mr. Le grabbed a flight attendant’s shoulder and demanded coffee as he was serving meals and beverages, citing a document submitted by the FBI.

According to the affidavit, he then made his way to the front of the plant where he sat in a vacant row next to the first-class cabin. The FBI claimed that when a different flight attendant requested Mr. Le to take a seat again, he closed both of his fists and took a “fighting stance.” When the flight attendant turned back to tell the pilot about the behavior, Mr. Le struck him.
