A scuffle between two passengers in Atlanta caused a pilot to intervene to break up the fight. In the process you can see the pilot hitting one of the women. Below is a statement from Delta on the incident as reported by TMZ. Neither passenger is filing charges.
“We became aware of this incident and a video last week and immediately removed the pilot from duty while we completed a thorough investigation,” a representative for the nation’s second-largest airline told the gossip site, adding that local law enforcement was called to the scene right away. “The pilot has since been returned to work as our investigation found that his actions deescalated an altercation between passengers on the jetway floor during deplaning.”
