WATCH: Man Fights Police at DFW Airport, Passengers Help Subdue Him



Police at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport needed a stun gun and the help of several passengers to subdue a man who instigated a wild brawl.

Jerome Toson Jr. was being held at a Fort Worth jail after being charged with assault of a public servant, attempting to take a weapon from a peace officer and resisting arrest, according to FOX4 in Texas.

“I really hope that whatever was going on with this guy, it was a moment in time,” said John Huston, a bystander who reportedly captured the footage, said in an interview with FOX 4.

Police were called to the airport Thursday after receiving a report about an unruly traveler shoving an airline employee, the news station reported.

As the video then picks up, Toson begins arguing with the officers and takes a punch at one. One officer then uses a stun gun but it doesn’t entirely incapacitate Toson.

It does bring him to the floor, however, and several passengers waiting for flights jump in to help the two officers.

American Airlines Offering Roundtrip Fares as Low as $32



Granted, there are very few people taking to the air these days in the wake of the devastating global spread of the coronavirus.

But American Airlines, for whatever reason, is offering one of those crazy once-in-a-lifetime deals.

As first reported by One Mile At A Time, American has a fare through the month of April where you can fly from Miami to Los Angeles for $16 each way.

Yep, that’s right – $32 roundtrip to go coast to coast.

No doubt it’s one of the most eye-catching, startling fares ever offered, even better than when some airlines run a buy one/get one special. Not that we didn’t believe One Mile At A Time, one of the most well-respected and well-read aviation blogs out there, but we had to see this for ourselves.

Sure enough, when TravelPulse checked it out on Sunday, the fare had increased.

By eight whole dollars.

Choosing random dates and leaving Miami International Airport for Los Angeles International on April 22 and returning April 29, the fare for basic economy was $40 roundtrip. Want a better seat? Main cabin fares were just $96 roundtrip. (Forget about first class. You didn’t think American was that generous, did you? Those fares were $854 roundtrip.)

For the month of May, again choosing random dates and leaving Miami on May 13 and returning May 20, we found basic economy roundtrip fares for $56 and main cabin for $121.

So who’s going to take a flyer on these fares while the virus is still raging?

Certainly, there will be some folks, especially those that might absolutely need to travel more immediately. Or, you might have the gamblers out there who will take the chance that the pandemic and the restrictions will come to an end sooner than later, making the purchase of a May flight seem like a steal.
