Airlines aren’t having the best luck with the press these days. Through some shocking footage, TMZ.com has unveiled a pilot from Delta airlines striking one of the female travelers who had been engaged in a tussle with another lady.
The episode took place on Sunday or Monday at the Atlanta airport.
According to TMZ, the ladies had been involved in a struggle with one another and once the two individuals dropped to the floor, the aviator attempted to get them apart. On the footage, the pilot appears to be tugging the female’s arm prior to hitting her. After that, he promptly leaves.
TMZ was informed that the ladies on the vid were in a fight previously while in the aircraft, and they also knew one another. These individuals were ultimately removed from the plane by an employee from Delta, and when they were leaving, law enforcement arrived. Allegedly neither of them planned to bring charges.
A representative from Delta, Brian Kruse, distributed a press release concerning the situation:
“We became aware of this incident and a video last week and immediately removed the pilot from duty while we completed a thorough investigation. Local law enforcement was called to respond at the time of the incident. The pilot has since been returned to work as our investigation found that his actions deescalated an altercation between passengers on the jetway floor during deplaning.”
