Plane passenger assaults husband on flight with… a laptop

A woman onboard an American Airlines flight has left fellow passengers and cabin crew in shock after bashing her husband with a laptop.

Video of the incident has been circulating online in recent days, showing a female and male passenger – believed to be husband and wife – engaged in a fierce verbal stoush on a plane waiting to leave the tarmac in Miami to Los Angeles.

Despite not being visible for part of the video, the woman can be heard yelling at her husband for looking at other females on the plane, before a loud slapping sound shocks onlookers.

Cabin crew can then be seen asking the couple to disembark the plane, to which the man obliges, while the woman chases after him and smashes a laptop on his head.

Watch the chaos unfold below:

In a statement to Fox News, an American Airlines spokesperson said: “Prior to departure from the gate on Sunday at Miami International Airport, two passengers who were travelling together were involved in a dispute.

“Law enforcement was requested, and both passengers were removed from the aircraft.

“We thank the American crew who worked quickly to diffuse the situation. Their actions resulted in a safe environment for all of our passengers.”

Police told Fox News that the argument was sparked over issues with the woman’s alcohol consumption, and said that a fellow passenger and flight attendant were also hit by the laptop after it rebounded off the man.
