According to the WFAA, he reportedly attempted to switch to a better seat on the plane and refused to move when the passenger assigned to the seat asked him to move.

The man was supposedly upset with his actual seat assignment, so he sat down in the row right behind first class in the window seat.

In the video, the disruptive passenger can be heard saying: “Don’t force me. Don’t violate my freedom.

“That’s my seat. You don’t like it, switch it.”

 The man told other passengers to shut up when he refused to move from the seat

He added: “I’m going to shut up and I’m going to be in that seat.

“Take me off this plane and you’re going to federal court.”

Another video showed him arguing with a woman telling her to shut up as it was his seat.

She told him: “You can’t talk to anyone like that, you’re getting kicked off of this flight.”

He was then taken from the flight after being handcuffed to a wheelchair with at least four police officers escorting him.

The footage shows him attempting to stop them taking him as he grabs onto a door frame with this legs.

Police then wheeled him through the terminal, although it is not confirmed if any arrests were made.

Another passenger was kicked off a plane earlier this week after she hit her boyfriend over the head with a laptop after catching him “looking at another woman”.
