WATCH: Pilot tackles unruly passenger who assaulted flight attendant
The pilot made his point pretty clear: Don’t you dare mess with his flight attendants.
 
Cell phone video footage shows an American Airlines pilot tackling an unruly passenger moments after the man allegedly assaulted a female flight attendant. Watch in the video below.
 
The incident reportedly took place July 21 on a flight departing from Lexington, Kentucky, according to the Charlotte Observer .
 
The unidentified pilot can be seen taking down passenger Michael Kerr, yelling at the 25-year-old, “Enough! You don’t put your hands on my flight attendant!”
 
In the video, Kerr slurs his words and appears to forcibly shove the attendant to the floor. Released on $25,000 bond, Kerr faces multiple charges and is prohibited from flying as he awaits trial.
