One person was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct after a large fight broke out at Miami International Airport Sunday, according to Miami-Dade police.

Footage of the intense altercation — which showed a group of four people grappling each other into a kiosk and another group of three throwing kicks and punches — circulated on social media late Sunday. Airport officials said police immediately responded to the scene outside Gate D-14.

“The victim did not want to press any charges. However, one person was arrested for disorderly conduct,” said Miami-Dade Police in an email to the Miami Herald.

He was later identified by police as 20-year-old Jameel Tremain Decquir.

“The victim was treated by Miami-Dade Fire Rescue for minor injuries and released on the scene.”

A witness told Local 10 News that the fight started over seats available on the plane and that seven people were involved.
