A disturbing video obtained by CBS News shows the moment a Southwest Airlines flight attendant was attacked by a passenger.
The flight attendant had reportedly told the unhinged passenger to keep her seat belt fastened during a flight from Sacramento to San Diego.
A Southwest spokesperson confirmed “Our reports indicate that a passenger physically assaulted a flight attendant upon landing on Flight #700 from Sacramento to San Diego Sunday morning. The passenger repeatedly ignored standard inflight instructions and became verbally and physically abusive upon landing. Law enforcement officials were requested to meet the flight upon arrival, and the passenger was taken into custody.”
