Miami Officers Arrest Two Brothers After They Attacked Pilot

Associated Press

July 28, 2011

MIAMI — Police say two brothers were arrested at Miami International Airport after attacking a pilot who kicked them off his plane.

According to an arrest affidavit, Jonathan and Luis Baez were aboard an American Airlines flight bound for San Francisco.

Police say that while the plane taxied out Wednesday night, a flight attendant noticed that Jonathan Baez had not buckled his seat belt. She told police he was unresponsive and appeared to be intoxicated.

The pilot turned the plane back to the gate, and the brothers were escorted off the plane. But police say Jonathan Baez returned and punched the pilot in the face.

Police say both brothers then attacked the pilot as he followed them into the terminal.

Jail records did not show whether the Baezes had attorneys.

    It sounds like they really wanted some jail time. I hope the Pilot files a complaint and stays with it.

    Hbryant188 is telling the trueth I used to xray baggage for incoming/outgoing pilots....These pilots where I worked rarely had passengers on board, if they did it was a handler.... Those packing were given a Tag for their bag containing... we did not xray them as to keep the machines from alarming and shutting down... FYI about 8 out of 10 are packing!

    You better watch out who you mess with at the airport. Many pilots (including myself) pack heat while they work. They were lucky this pilot wasn't carrying and shot them.
