Pregnant Frontier Airlines passenger allegedly punched in stomach at Orlando airport

A deaf couple and their two children were flying to Orlando when a woman and her husband allegedly complained about the family's service dog in a confrontation that turned physical. The service dog, an 8-month-old Great Dane named Zariel, then woke up. At some point Ramirez, who is 20 weeks pregnant, was punched in the stomach by Timothy Manley, according to police.

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.

The pregnant woman told the Orlando Sentinel her service dog, Zariel had slept through the majority of the flight before waking up when the flight landed and stretching, which led to Manley 'pouncing' on the dog. Manley's wife complained about being allergic to dogs as the plane descended and then taxied to a gate at Orlando International Airport.

Police said Timothy Manley was travelling from Colorado Springs, Colo., along with his wife Petrini Manley, 56, and Joshua Manley, 27, all from Gainesville, Florida.

However, Petrini said the entire incident took place because of a misunderstanding and said her husband hit the dog by mistake.

Manley got in Silva's face before punching Ramirez in the stomach and pushing her two daughters to the ground. She accused Silvay of being the aggressor. WESH 2 News published a video on its site that shows "a man running after another man" in the terminal. "She was freaking out. And I couldn't figure out why this man was chasing another man".

"So my husband gets mad and yelled at the man to tell him never touch any dogs or service animals".

Silva tackled Manley and held him down until police arrived.

Both families were interviewed by responding officers and declined medical attention.

The Orlando Police Department told the Sentinel the FBI is handling the investigation since the incident happened on a plane. She plans to press charges and testify against Manley in court.
