A United Airlines passenger allegedly attacked an attendant on a CommutAir flight from Washington, D.C., to Newark Thursday night.
Matthew Dingley, 28, was on a United Express flight from Dulles International Airport on January 9 that was about to touch down at the Newark Liberty International Airport when he started behaving erratically,according to NBC New York.
Officials told Washington ABC affiliate WJLA that Dingley rushed at six Port Authority police officers when the plane came to a stop on the tarmac and the plane's door opened, causing them to fall down the plane's exit stairs.
The officers were treated for non-life threatening injuries sustained during the altercation, according to WJLA. One of the six suffered four broken ribs, the outlet said.
The 28-year-old Dingley faces a slew of charges for the violent outburst, including aggravated assault and resisting arrest. It was not immediately clear if he had an attorney.
He was also found guilty of a DWI in New York in 2017.
