United passenger was dragged off the plane with ‘minimal but necessary force,’ officials say
From The Washington Post:
Chicago Department of Aviation officers used “minimal but necessary force” when they dragged a passenger off a United Airlines flight earlier this month, according to an incident report.
The report from the department describes what the officers say happened April 9, on United Express Flight 3411. It says that the passenger, David Dao, was “aggressive” and “violently” swung his arms at officers, who then had to forcibly remove him from the plane.
