A Philadelphia man was arrested after taking a swing at a United Airlines pilot.

It happened on Tuesday at a terminal in Dulles Airport. Police say 53-year-old Donald Gee approached a United Airlines pilot at the security gate after missing his flight.

He had a few choice words for a pilot and words led to a left jab then a right.

Other airport employees stepped in, and restrained Gee until police got there. Gee has been charged with assault and public intoxication.
