Drunk Airport Fight: Texas A&M Fan Appears To Start Fight In New Orleans (VIDEO)

A fight broke out in Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport when an allegedly drunk Texas A&M fan appeared to physically attack a black man and call him the "N-word" twice.

The fight took place on Nov. 11 and the video was posted to Reddit by user "westtexan1," who says he witnessed the fight and explained what happened.

According to westtexan1, the fight happened while he was waiting for a Southwest flight from New Orleans to Houston. He explained that the Aggies fan, who was wearing a "Johnny Football" T-shirt in honor of quarterback Johnny Manziel, was not allowed to board and became angry.

"He got irate with the ticket counter attendant and dumped out a bag of trail mix," the user wrote. Things began to get out of hand when other man, who was waiting at the ticket counter, told him to calm down.

The fan then "started dropping n-bombs and even made a comment about picking cotton," the Redditor added.

The fight only lasted for 30 seconds before security broke things up, and for once, taping a fight turned out to be a good thing. "Luckily it was caught on video because the Johnny Football guy lied to the cops initially and said the [other man] started it," he wrote.

On Saturday, No. 15 Texas A&M beat No. 1 Alabama 29-24. The Aggies left the Big 12 Conference last year to join the Southeastern Conference.
