Police say 'minimal but necessary force' used on United passenger

Police say 'minimal but necessary force' used on United passengerVideo taken by other passengers showed David Dao, a 69-year-old Vietnamese-American doctor, being dragged up the aisle with blood on his face after the airline decided it needed his seat for a crew member on a flight from Chicago to Kentucky on April 9. Dao suffered concussion, a broken nose and lost two front teeth and is likely to sue the airline, his lawyer, Thomas Demetrio, has said. In an incident reported released by city authorities and posted on the Chicago Tribune’s website, aviation police officer Mauricio Rodriguez said Dao had become combative when he and two other officers tried to persuade him to leave the plane.
