(CNN)Video evidence has emerged of an American Airlines incident in which an unidentified male passenger confronts a male flight attendant, warning him "You do that to me, and I'll knock you flat." The flight attendant rushes right back at the passenger and responds with "Hit me. Bring it on." This chest-bumping came shortly after that same flight attendant apparently had a confrontation with a female passenger holding a baby and yanked a baby stroller away from her.
