Man tasered on American Airlines flight after allegedly fondling a female passenger

Garcia, of the Portage Park neighborhood in Chicago, has been charged with one count each of battery, disorderly conduct, resisting arrest, depriving an officer of a firearm, and criminal mischief.

Fellow passenger Jabari Ennis, 37, described the incident on Twitter: "The man started harassing a couple on the plane, hitting on the female and being disrespectful to the guy". According to the airline, the flight was still at the gate when flight attendants asked the "instigating passenger" to deplane and he refused. Police said Garcia resisted as officers tried to handcuff him, prompting one of the officers to repeatedly use a stun gun to subdue him.

Garcia was eventually removed from the flight and taken into police custody where he is being held on a $9,000 bond pending his hearing.

After Garcia continued to fight with the three officers, he was tasered.

Officer Roody Desroches, who is holding Garcia by the collar of his blue plaid shirt, agrees, and gives Garcia a heads-up: "I'm about to tase you!" he says, discharging the electronic control weapon.

The flight, which was bound for Chicago, was still at the gate when crew members began asking Garcia to deplane. They then chose to remove him and called the police'.

Garcia tells him: 'Go on Taser me, and you'll see what happens'. Officer Desroches slapped Garcia's hand away, and Garcia made a second reach that Desroches parried.
