The video picks up after things had already turned physical with an officer apprehending one traveler in a chokehold while other travelers encircled the officer trying to pry the man loose. Once the man is let go, he reengages the officer who then pulls out his firearm.

“Like airports across the country, (Miami International Airport) is seeing record-high passenger numbers this winter travel season,” MIA Director and CEO Ralph Cutié said in a statement.

“Unfortunately, that passenger growth has come with a record-high increase nationwide in bad behavior as well, such as the incident this evening at MIA,” he added. “Disruptive passengers face police arrest, civil penalties up to $37,000, being banned from flying, and potential federal prosecution.”
