Video of Dao’s removal caused an uproar across the country after going viral.
One of the officers said in the report that Dao was “swinging his arms up and down with a closed fist.” He added that the passenger was “flailing and fighting” when Officer James Long tried to remove him and that is what caused Dao to hit his own head on a seat divider, The Tribune reported.
Dao, according to the report, returned to the flight and the flight crew said he had been “spitting blood” in the galley.
It was later discovered that Dao had a concussion, a broken nose, a sinus injury and lost two front teeth, The Tribune reported.
A total of four officers, Rodriguez, Long, Stephen Smith and Sgt. John Moore, are suspended with pay. Long, who is seen dragging Dao down the aisle had returned from a multi-day suspension for not guarding an airport entrance, WHAS and WGN reported.
