Body Cam Footage Released Following Associate Professor and Delta Pilot Incident

News

Video of an incident between a University of Arkansas Associate Professor and a Delta Airlines pilot has been released

“He literally pulls me from my jacket, and he says come here,” Khaled Beydoun says.

Beydoun claims the pilot grabbed him by the neck after getting off a flight at Northwest Arkansas Regional Airport last weekend.

This video from a police officer’s body camera shows Beydoun saying the pilot grabbed him by the arm. 

He claimed racial discrimination played a part in the incident. The pilot told police he never put his hands on Beydoun. 

Delta says Beydoun was asked to move from first class to coach because a flight attendant’s jump seat wasn’t working.
