    Miami-Dade Police took a man into custody inside Miami International Airport after saying he was creating a disturbance Wednesday afternoon.

    Officers say the man showed up inside the Concourse D check-in area and began making threatening remarks about the airport shortly after 12:30 p.m. He was quickly detained and placed under arrest by officers at the scene.

    Cell phone footage captured the suspect yelling incoherently as he walked through a ticketing area and near a security checkpoint before he was confronted by an officer.

    The video showed the man throwing punches at the officer, who appeared to pull out a baton. Moments later, what's believed to be a stun gun is heard as more officers respond to the scene and help take the man into custody.
