Police have made an arrest in the violent sucker-punch attack on actor Rick Moranis.

In a video taken by another passenger, you can hear Al-Khatahtbeh arguing with police about staying on the plane. It was an American Airlines jet, preparing to take off for Charlotte.

Al-Khatahtbeh says a first-class passenger falsely claimed to be threatened by her because they got into a dispute on the security line.
