Passengers of the Los Angeles-bound flight, delayed roughly 30 minutes after its scheduled take-off at 7.15am, watched in horror as two men scuffled in the isle. Curtis Maurice Clayton, 30, from South Carolina, was arrested at Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport for initiating the fight. Clayton was charged with battery and interference with government property and booked into the Clayton County Jail after damaging a police car while being taken into custody. The incident is the last in an alarming spike of disorderly passengers disrupting flights across the country. The Federal Aviation Authority (FAA) said in August it had issued more than $1 million in fines to unruly passengers in 2021, and revealed there have already been 4,941 unruly passenger reports this year alone.
