Twenty minutes after take off, a Delta flight had to be diverted back to Minneapolis-St Paul International Airport Wednesday after an unruly couple allegedly began fighting with the crew.
Blake Adam Fleisig, 35, and Anna Christine Koosmann, 36, were both arrested when the plane returned, and some of the chaos brought on by the couple was captured on video, the New York Daily News reported.

More from the Daily News:
Wednesday night’s 6:20 p.m. trip from Minneapolis to Los Angeles quickly returned to the Twin Cities after the airline said that the pair “refused to follow crew instructions, became aggressive and created a disruption.”
Both Blake Adam Fleisig and Anna Christine Koosmann were arrested and face disorderly conduct charges.
A passenger on the flight told KMSP that the disruption started after Koosmann got up to use the bathroom shortly after the plane took off, and did not listen to crew members telling her to go back to her seat.
As police escorted the pair off the plane, some on the flight began cheering, which prompted Fleisig to attack a passenger, as seen in the video below.
…but his troubles with law enforcement may only be the beginning.
The Daily Mail reported that Fleisig is the Vice President of Internal Audit Treasury Finance at Citi Bank.
