Sergio Brown got into a fight with police on a plane while they were trying to extradite him to the United States, video shows

Cell phone video shows former NFL player Sergio Brown fighting with officers earlier this week as they attempted to extradite him to the United States.

The video was filmed on the runway in Mexico City before the plane took off. Brown had been seen partying in Mexico shortly after the mysterious death of his mother.

In the video, Brown shouts that the officers are “kidnapping” him before shoving one of them.

“I have my passport. Why are they grabbing me? They are kidnapping me again,” he says. “This is a kidnapping. They are in uniform.”

Brown said several times that he was supposed to go to Colombia. That’s when he pushes one of the officers and the two push each other.

“This is a kidnapping. Cameras, please! Kidnapping,” he shouts again, before saying “this is criminal confinement” as he is restrained.

According to CBS8 in San Diego, Mexican officials were trying to take him to Tijuana to hand him over to U.S. officials to face first-degree murder charges for his mother’s death.

Brown’s mother’s body was found near a creek behind her home in Illinois last month. Myrtle Brown was 73 years old.

Brown, 35, was detained after attempting to return to the United States to California from Mexico by the San Diego Police Department’s Threat Management Unit and several other local and federal agencies after an arrest warrant was issued in Illinois.

The Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office ruled Myrtle Brown’s death a homicide and said she was injured during an assault.

Brown signed with the New England Patriots as an undrafted free agent in 2010. He played with several teams during his seven-year career, including the indianapolis colts, Jacksonville Jaguars and Buffalo Bills.
