“A verbal dispute while deplaning escalated in the lower level of terminal 3 when a 24-year-old female victim was punched by two offenders,” the Chicago Police Department said in a statement released to news outlets.
In the footage, two women are seen lying on the ground, grabbing each other’s hair. After they are separated, one of the women appears to be attacked from behind by another woman holding an unidentified object.
At this time in the video, a man rushes at the female attacker and shoves her to the ground.
“Hey, hey, bro!” a bystander was heard yelling as another man appeared to throw a punch at that woman’s head.
The cause of the violent fight was not immediately clear.

In the video, bystanders could be heard saying, “Where’s security?” and “Stop!”
Police have since arrested two of those involved. Christopher Hampton, an 18-year-old from Maywood, Illinois, and Tembra Hicks, a 20-year-old from Carol Stream, Illinois are now in custody. Both are facing one misdemeanor count of battery.
“Safety and security are always the top priorities of the Chicago Department of Aviation,” the operator of the airport told local news outlet, Fox32 Chicago. “We work closely with all of our federal partners present at O’Hare and Midway International Airports and the Chicago Police Department to ensure that everyone is safe when they are in our facilities.”

This is not the first airport fight that has occurred this month. Earlier this month, a woman claiming to be pregnant allegedly attacked a Spirit Airlines employee at Hartsfield–Jackson Atlanta International Airport. According to police documents, the supposedly pregnant woman has been under the influence of booze at the time. Que Maria Scott, 29, faces disorderly conduct charges in connection with the attack.
