28-year-old Thang Sang refused to leave an Alaska Airlines flight just before takeoff on September 26. 
  
According to the Department of Public Safety, Sang's charged with Assault on a Law Enforcement Officer, Disorderly Conduct and Resisting Arrest.

According to Alaska Air, Sang locked himself inside a restroom and when he refused to come out sheriffs were called on board. Passenger Lindsey Babb captured the chaotic scene on camera.

"This man is kicking his shouting the police have weapons on them they were scuffling in between 3 feet over aisle and multiple different seats of people and children," Babb said.

Babb's 9 and 11-year-old daughters were on the flight with her. She says she tried to make light of the situation at first to keep them from panicking. 
 
"Initially when we saw a man exiting from the restroom appearing to be soaking wet I was trying to you know what was he doing taking a bath and they're trying to be silly with my girls because I knew they were equally as confused as I," Babb said.

Babb believes passengers should have been removed from the plan before sheriffs tried to obtain the man. 

The Department of Public Safety released this statement, "The airline carrier takes the lead on all disturbances on their flights.  Alaska Air flight 710 was attempting to depart when the disturbance happened.  Whether or not to deplane passengers or call in law enforcement assistance is the decision of the carrier."

Alaska Airlines released this statement in response to the incident, "The safety of our guests and crew is our top priority...We sincerely apologize to our guests for the inconvenience."

After Sang was removed, the flight eventually took off two hours after its initial departure time.
