VAL: United Airlines Physically Removes Doctor From The Plane Because Of Overbooking

***Update From TMZ***

The officer who forcibly removed the United Airlines passenger Sunday night at O'Hare International has just been placed on leave pending an investigation.

The Chicago Department of Aviation said Monday that "the incident on United flight 3411 was not in accordance with our standard operating procedure and the actions of the aviation security officer are obviously not condoned by the Department."

It's unclear which officer the CDA is referring to ... but videos from multiple witnesses on the plane show a man in plain clothes violently grabbing the passenger and dragging him down the aisle ... as 2 uniformed officers follow behind.

Chicago PD said the man started yelling before Aviation Officers tried to forcibly remove him.

A Doctor and his wife were on a United flight when they were looking for some passengers to give up their seats and they refused to give up theirs. Then this happened...

"After our team looked for volunteers, one customer refused to leave the aircraft voluntarily and law enforcement was asked to come to the gate," a spokesperson for United said in a statement.

This incident comes not too long after the airline banned a 10 year old girl for wearing leggings. SMH
