CHICAGO — A man claiming to be a doctor was forcibly dragged off a United Airlines flight in Chicago on Sunday night, and video of the incident was posted to social media.
The video shows the man screaming as he is dragged off the plane by uniformed personnel. The plane was about to take off from Chicago to Louisville, Ky.
Audra Bridges told the Louisville Courier-Journal that the flight was overbooked, and passengers were offered $400 and a free hotel room in exchange for their seat.
No passengers took the offer. After passengers got on the plane, Bridges said United doubled the offer to $800.
