Earlier today we wrote about how a Brawl Erupts after Spirit Airlines Cancelled Flights in FLL, however it seems like fights at airports and on flights are becoming more common, as the latest to emerge is one that occurred on a Southwest Airlines flight after landing in Burbank, California.

Per ABC 7 News,
A vicious fight broke out on a Southwest flight as it was taxiing in Burbank, as one man was seen repeatedly punching another before passengers were able to pull him away.
The suspect was arrested on suspicion of assault and battery, while police said the victim suffered a contusion to his left eye, a laceration to his nose and a chipped tooth.
Burbank police identified the suspect as Chaze Mickalo Cable, 37, of Lancaster. He was arrested for assault and battery and held on $50,000 bail.
In video captured by other passengers, the suspect is seen wrestling with another man as a woman screams “Get off, what is wrong with you!” and tries to pull him away.
The wrestling turns to punching as the two roll over onto another seat and fall on top of a flight attendant who was trying to intervene.
