Officers' Reports From United Incident Completely Contradicts Videos

Demetrio called the one-sentence statement "utter nonsense".

United CEO Oscar Munoz also pledged a full investigation, with the results expected to be released by the end of the month.

The incident sparked global outrage, and prompted an eventual apology from company CEO Oscar Munoz.

But a separate report filed by Chicago police says only that "Dr. Dao folded his arms across his body and refused to move from his seat". "Mr. Munoz had that opportunity to publicly apologize, and then he didn't, then he called the doctor belligerent, then he finally said 'mea culpa, ' so we're past the stage of needing ..."

During the physical confrontation, the officers in multiple reports suggested Dao's injuries may have been caused by the doctor himself. The officer says Dao was "flailing and fighting". While they are removing him, officers said Dao is "able to knock an officers hand off his arm, causing the officer to lose control and Dao to fall and hit his mouth".

According to the plainclothes officer's personnel file, obtained by ABC News, he had just returned from a five-day disciplinary suspension for "insubordination" in late March.

At one point, Dr. Dao said he'd "rather go to jail" than get off the plane.

The aviation police reports were released on Monday, April 24, 2017, in response to Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests by the Los Angeles Times and other media organizations.

Two weeks ago, Aviation Commissioner Ginger Evans said Ferguson's office had been notified of the United case, in which aviation police dragged a bloodied David Dao of Kentucky from a plane, and video of the incident triggered worldwide criticism of the airline and city. Disturbing videos taken by other passengers show him bleeding from the mouth as he was dragged off the plane.

When Demetrio was asked how much they would be suing United Airlines for, questioning if the number would be in the tens of millions, Demetrio said it's too early to decide that at this time.

The commissioner also referred to the uniform controversy that would surface later during the City Council hearing - that she had ordered aviation officers in January to remove the word "police" from their uniforms, but at least one of the responding officers had the word "police" on his jacket.
