(CNN) - A passenger who was caught on video punching a flight attendant mid-flight Wednesday is under arrest.
Cellphone video captured part of the incident that occurred on an American Airlines flight between San Jose del Cabo, Mexico, and Los Angeles.
Alexander Tung Cuu Le is charged with interference with flight crew members.
The video appears to show Le punching a flight attendant in the back of the head.
The flight attendant was taken to the hospital after the plane landed.
Le was handcuffed and detained by passengers for the rest of the flight, who restrained him with seat belt extenders.
He is expected to appear in court on Monday.
