We learned from our friends at the Shelbyville Times Gazette that a Shelbyville man faces charges after a brawl at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport last Thursday.
McCleish Christmas "Mac" Benham, 27, is charged with public intoxication and simple assault.
Benham allegedly kicked a man in the groin and hit him in the head with his fist before three to five passengers subdued him, according to a Dallas police report. He continued to struggle with officers while being arrested, an airport police officer said in his report.
According to a DFW Airport police officer, Benham argued with an American Airlines gate agent over flight arrangements, telling her he'd consumed "100 drinks."
Benham allegedly made a verbal slur toward a man who told him to calm down because police were on the way, then struck him twice, also threatening another man standing nearby, officer Derrick Niblett's report said.
