Lawyer sparks airport brawl

Showing strong signs of airport-induced rage and frustration, Indian lawyer Riyaz Ahmed Ghani has been caught trying to jump the check-in queue at an Indian airport – a daring move at any airport, but particularly so when an equally frustrated police officer happens to be waiting.

As One India News reports, a Madras High Court lawyer was taken into police custody at Chennai airport after he attempted to jump the queue in front of a New Delhi police officer who was on the same flight.

After police officer Gulshan Kumar attempted to reprimand the lawyer for his serious airport offence, a brawl broke out between them, leading the police officer to lodge an official complaint against the queue-jumper. Ghani was then taken into police custody, while the police officer was allowed on his flight.
