New Video: Fight Breaks Out on Southwest Airlines Flight

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.

  1. One time when I was 25 and solid muscle this chubby 35-year-old got very pushy when it was time to deplane. I was in the aisle seat, and he got up from his middle seat and let me know he wanted me to move by pushing my head with the brim of his cowboy hat. He was wearing the had, so he was get his face in mine. There wasn’t a way to get up without being more pushy to the other passengers, and I didn’t want to get in a confrontation in a crowded space. So I just waited, pretending to ignore it.

    When the traffic started moving, he was pushing me from behind with his hand. The dork wasn’t going to get off that plane any faster by pushing, but I still waited for a strategic moment to respond.

    When the traffic really got moving eventually there was some space in the ailse behind the guy, and I turned around square and nearly decked him with a good two-handed shove. The pushy dork looked pretty scared that I was going to kick his ass. Of course, I wouldn’t want to do that in front of the flight attendants, who are essentially police officers in the plane.
