You remember that wild scenario when that passenger from United Airlines was dragged off the flight? Well, the passenger’s name was Dr. David Dao and he wound up settling with United for an undisclosed amount. However, a few of the officers involved in the incident were terminated. According to TMZ:
The officers who violently dragged a passenger off a United Airlines flight have been canned and a third has resigned … 6 months after the violent incident was caught on video.
The Chicago Dept. of Aviation on Tuesday released a report outlining why it fired an officer, sergeant and suspended 2 others for their role in savagely dragging Dr. David Dao off Flight 3411 at Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport back in April.
In the Inspector General’s report, the IG said one officer was fired for improperly escalating the incident while a sergeant was 86’d after removing facts from an employee report.
Dao — who later settled with United for an undisclosed amount — suffered a concussion, broken nose and lost 2 teeth. Following the news, Dao’s attorney, Thomas Demetrio, said “This is not a day of celebration for Dr. Dao, who is neither vindictive nor happy about Mr. Ferguson’s findings. There is a lesson to be learned here for police officers at all levels.”
Well, there you have it!!
