By Gina Tron

On Sunday, a fistfight on a flight was caught on cell phone video.

According to CNN, Southwest flight 2530 had traveled from Dallas and was on a layover at Hollywood Burbank Airport. A fistfight broke out between two men. The cell phone video shows one man leaning over the other, who had fallen, before punching him. Passengers then rush in to stop the assault.

"What is wrong with you?" a female passenger asked the man who was punching.

One man suffered minor injuries but was able to continue on to his destination, Southwest Airlines said in a statement. The aggressor, a 37-year-old man from Lancaster, California, was detained at the gate. He was arrested for misdemeanor battery and booked into the Burbank City Jail.
