According to a video posted by TMZ, Sergio Brown, a former NFL player who was detained in connection with the death of his mother, struggled with Mexican authorities on a plane in Mexico City as they attempted to extradite him back to the United States.
Michelle Williams, a Lakeside, California, homeowner, and her family were en route home when Brown began yelling and arguing with two officers at his seat on a flight to Tijuana.
He was caught on camera arguing with the Plane’s captain.
“I have my passport. Why are they grabbing me?” he said to the passengers. “They’re kidnapping me again. I’m from Chicago. My flight was [to] Colombia. Why am I going to Tijuana?”
“Let me go!” he yelled. “This is kidnapping! Cameras, please! Kidnapping!”
“This is a kidnapping,” he repeated. “They’re in uniforms.”
The woman who captured the footage, Williams, told KFMB that it took police an hour and a half to remove Brown off the aircraft.
“It was crazy just to hear him start yelling that he was being kidnapped, that these men were kidnapping him. And I’m just thinking, what is going on?”
Following his return to the US from Tijuana, Brown was detained in San Diego a few days ago. He is currently detained in San Diego without bail while he awaits extradition to Maywood to stand trial for the murder.
Officers have 30 days to locate him and bring him back to Illinois where he will be charged with murder.
Police reported that his mother Myrdle Brown’s body was discovered on September 16 in a creek bed close to the house she and her son shared in the Maywood neighborhood of Chicago. The 35-year-old had been AWOL for a month and claimed that his mother’s murder had been a hoax on his Instagram account.
