Texas airport police taser suspect in wild brawl caught on video

It’s not often you see something like this at the terminal.

A wild brawl between a traveler and police officers that involved the usage of a Taser was caught on video this week as passengers were waiting to board their flights at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport in Texas.

“I really hope that whatever was going on with this guy, it was a moment in time,” John Huston, the bystander who reportedly captured the footage, said in an interview with Fox 4.

Police told the station they were called to the airport Thursday afternoon after receiving a report of a man shoving an airline employee.

When they arrived, authorities say the suspect — identified as Jerome Toson Jr.– started arguing with the officers and took a swipe at one of them.

Footage purportedly shows an officer then tasering Toson. A scuffle ensues and he is eventually brought to the ground and subdued with the help of other travelers.
