Man Punches Pregnant Deaf Woman and Her Service Dog on Orlando Flight

Timothy Manley

A new video has emerged in the ongoing battle between a deaf man, his pregnant fiancee and their service dog - and the man who police said punched the latter two after a flight from Colorado to Florida.

A passenger who thought a service dog was taking up too much space on his flight punched the animal and its deaf, pregnant owner, Orlando police tell CBS affiliate WKMG.

When the plane landed, Silvay and Ramirez gave statements to police while Manley is said to have walked past officers. They were flying from Colorado Springs to Orlando International Airport on Thursday when the incident occurred. One other man can also be heard yelling, "The place's the police?"

Timothy Manley punched the service dog, Zariel, and caused it to yelp.

Ramirez says the service dog slept through the duration of the 3-hour Frontier Airlines flight then woke up as the plane landed.

"I hope he will be arrested", Ramirez said.

Earlier, Timothy Manley's wife, Petrini, had complained of allergies, and the canine's stretch was allegedly the final straw for the 59-year-old.

"Unfortunately the man determined to leave so he ran and punched my belly then pushed my two daughters, they fell and cried so hard", Ramirez said, adding that she and her family traveled to Orlando for their gender reveal party.

Off the plane, the passengers' feud appeared to escalate. Despite being at fault, Manley continued his obnoxious behavior, telling the police, "It took you all long enough to get here", according to the report.

In the police report, Silvay admitted he tackled Timothy, saying he did so to detain him until police arrived.

Manley's wife told WFTV that the way Silvay was acting made it seem like he was trying to hold them hostage. The soon-to-be mother-of-three says she will testify in court if needed.

Everyone involved in the incident declined medical treatment.

The Orlando Police Department told the Sentinel the FBI is handling the investigation since the incident happened on a plane.
