A NY man was arrested for assaulting a flight attendant and responding officers.

A passenger on the United Airlines flight from Washington, D.C., to Newark told NBC that it started when Dingley sprinted at the cockpit and began to pound on the door.

When a flight attendant tried to calm him down, he allegedly attacked her, and later stormed at law enforcement officials.

The airline declined to offer any details about the alleged encounter between Dingley and the flight attendant, but it confirmed that the flight did have trouble with a "disruptive passenger".

A little before 9 p.m., Port Authority Police responded to the flight when it arrived at Newark Airport.
