A drunk airport fight took place in New Orleans over the weekend when a clearly wasted Texas A & M fan attacked an African-American man.
According to the description on the YouTube video, this fight started over some spilled trail mix:
Johnny ‘effing football flips out on the gate agent and this passenger tries to handle the situation. This all started over a bag of trail mix that the dude dumped on the counter and then refused to clean it up.
Reddit user westtexan1, who apparently witnessed the fight said:
“i saw this go down yesterday waiting for my Southwest flight from New Orleans to Houston. the Aggie fan in the Johnny Football shirt was drunk and not allowed to board the plane. He got irate with the ticket counter attendant and dumped out a bag of trail mix. The black guy was waiting at the ticket counter stood up for the ticket attendant and told Johnny F’in Football to calm down. He then redirected his anger at the black guy, started dropping n-bombs and even made a comment about picking cotton.
Fisticuffs ensued and after about 30 secs Paul Blart showed up on a segway. Luckily it was caught on video because the Johnny Football guy lied to the cops initially and said the black guy started it – upon reviewing the video evidence the black guy was exonerated and allowed the board the flight. Everyone clapped for him as he was walking down the aisle (especially me because I was flying standby and ended up getting Johnny Football’s seat!
Youtube has since removed several copies of the video because of Terms Of Service violations.
