A videotape captured by a Southwest Airlines passenger has surfaced showing a vicious fight on board a jet that had reportedly landed at Burbank Bob Hope Airport.

The video depicts a man brutally punching another before other passengers were able to break up the skirmish.

One victim was bloodied and suffered a chipped tooth, Burbank police were quoted as saying to multiple news organizations.

The suspect was identified as Chaze Mickalo Cable, 37, of Lancaster; he was arrested on suspicion of assault and battery, according to reports.

It’s not clear what started the altercation.

Southwest flight 2530 Sunday had arrived from Dallas and was stopping in Burbank before heading to Oakland; the fight began as passengers were preparing to deplane, according to reports.

In the video, a woman screams at the suspect and tries to pull him away, “Get off, what is wrong with you!”
