Two male American Airlines flight attendants were assaulted while their plane was on the ground at Charlotte Douglas International Airport this week.
The plane just pushed away from the gate but was not in the air when the two men, 34 and 58, were assaulted. "The older attendant was carried out of the plane on a stretcher for serious injuries. After the fight started, the aircraft immediately returned to the gate and officers say the suspect surrendered peacefully".
A witness said the suspect "had been screaming about assassins on the plane". He reportedly surrendered peacefully.
