The incident, which was videotaped by other passengers at the O'Hare International Airport in Chicago, sparked a national outcry and three of the involved aviation officers were subsequently placed on leave, according to the aviation department.
The encounter, captured on videos taken by other passengers, and the airline company's handling of the aftermath set off an global outrage and a prolonged public relations nightmare for United.
Reports state that after Dao was dragged off the plane he rushed back on board.
A Department of Aviation report of the incident, using statements from aviation officers involved, said that officers were trying to persuade Mr. Dao to leave in a "calm manner" but he refused and said he didn't care if he was arrested. The officers said in the reports they repeatedly asked Dao to leave the plane after airline officials said he and his wife had been selected by a computer to give up their seats when no one volunteered to leave. Ferguson has the authority to recommend disciplining or firing city employees, although the final decision will be up to Evans - who reports to Mayor Rahm Emanuel. Long's grip failed as Dao swung-which is when Dao's face plunged into the armrest, Rodriguez said in the report.
