A confrontation in the cabin aboard an American Airlines jet was captured on video, showing the pilot had had enough with a drunken passenger.

It all began on a flight from Lexington, Kentucky, to Charlotte, North Carolina, which should only be about an hour-long trip. Eyewitnesses said Michael Kerr, 25, downed three Jack Daniels drinks during the flight.

When the plane landed, they said Kerr got up and walked off, but the problem was the plane was still being taxied into the gate.

In the video, a flight attendant tells Kerr to take a seat, but he refuses and tries to push them out of the way. Kerr, who remained combative, was restrained by the pilot until police arrived.
