Unruly Passenger Fights Officers at Airport Gate.

(Miami-Dade County, FL) -- 

The Miami-Dade Police Department, Airport District is investigating an incident involving unruly passengers at Miami International Airport.
According to investigators, officers responded to Gate H8 after call from an airport employee. The employee advised that as he was driving a transport cart, a unruly passenger refused to let him through, entered the cart, broke the key and refused to exit the cart. As the responding officers attempted to calm the subject, who refused exit the cart, a physical confrontation between the subject and the officers ensued, and a large crowd surrounded the officers.  Additional officers responded and the subject was placed under arrest.  An additional involved subject was identified and arrested. 
Mayfrer Serranopaca complained of feeling ill and arm pain, and was treated and released on the scene by Miami-Dade Fire Rescue (MDFR).​ MDFR also treated one of the responding officers, who sustained injuries during the altercation, and was bitten on the head by Serranopaca.
