96-Second News: United Passenger Thrown Off; Bradley Cooper’s Baby Name

United Airlines bumped a guy off a flight from Chicago to Louisville on Sunday night, even though he’d paid for his ticket, because they were overbooked.  But when he wouldn’t get out of his seat, three security guards DRAGGED him off the plane and left him bleeding and injured. United said they NEEDED four people to give up their seats so four of their employees could get to Louisville.

They offered $800, a hotel, and a flight on Monday afternoon, but no one took them up on their offer.  So apparently, their policy in that case is to pick people RANDOMLY and FORCE them to give up the seats THEY PAID FOR.

The police are still investigating.
