MIAMI - Two brothers were arrested at Miami International Airport on Wednesday night after they attacked a pilot who had asked them to leave a flight bound for San Francisco, police said.

American Airlines flight 1755 was taxiing to the runway when a flight attendant noticed that Jonathan Baez, 27, had not buckled his seat belt, police said.

The flight attendant told police that she tried to wake Baez up, but he was unresponsive and appeared to be intoxicated or on drugs.

She then notified the pilot, who turned the plane around and asked the man to get off.
