A video of a fight, shot by Twitter user @CoreyHour, on an airplane in Japan destined for LAX is making headlines. The flight was delayed for over an hour and was boarding for takeoff.Cause of FightWhile the plane was still sitting on the tarmac two passengers, one presumably drunk, start swinging at each other. In the video, passengers can be seen getting out of the way as the two swing. Voices can be heard in the background pleading for calm, and a young child can be heard crying.The man in the red shirt was the aggressor and considered a safety risk by the police but would not leave the plane.A member of the flight crew tries to get in between the two guys in an attempt to break it up. Eventually the guy in the red shirt leaves, seemingly being taken off the plane, but a few seconds later he returns for round two.Clearly, there is no winner in a situation like this. Trying to punch someone over airplane seat is not that easy, which is probably why the guy kept at it. Although it does look like black shirt guy got in a good one at the beginning.Japan Today reported that the guy in the red shirt is 44 years old and was arrested Monday night after he was escorted off the plane. The man, whose identity was not released, was charged with assault.
