Just as they were about to board their plane at the Kunming airport on Tuesday, one Chinese married couple’s argument escalated into a brawl on the tarmac.
Photos from the scene show the husband with his shirt torn off pinning his wife to the ground. Unsurprisingly, the couple are currently in the midst of divorce negotiations, police told local media.
After they both calmed down, the couple then tried to board their China Eastern Airlines flight to Chengdu as if nothing had happened, but the flight captain called security instead.
The husband and wife were detained by police. They were given a verbal warning, offered counseling, but were not charged with any crime and allowed to go free.
Because of their scuffle the flight was delayed 28 minutes.
