There’s nothing like a Sunday evening fight…between passengers at Miami International Airport.
Fight Night: Passengers Brawl At Miami International Airport
Check out this 90-second clip shared on Twitter of multiple fights occurring near gate D14 (if you’re familiar with MIA, this is in the American Airlines terminal near the Urban Decay and elevators up to the American Express Centurion Lounge).

Perhaps more interesting than the fights themselves (and it is not at all clear what caused these fights or how far ahead of filming they started), is that other passengers just stood around and watched and that no law enforcement showed up to break up the fight.
By the end of the clip above, it appears an American Airlines employee (poor guy…) does attempt to step in, but it is another passenger (man in the blue shirt) who seems to play a greater role in separating the brawlers from one another.
Unconfirmed accounts on Twitter suggest that arrests were later made.
Rather than speculate about the circumstances surrounding this fight, I’ll only concede that I too probably would have stood back and watched, in fear of my own safety. Kudos to the man in the light blue shirt for stepping in and trying to break things up.
And that the fight occurred outside an Urban Decay shop…how tragically fitting.
Did you witness the fight? How would you have handled it?
