LOS ANGELES -- A brawl involving multiple passengers on a Spirit Airlines flight that had arrived at Los Angeles International Airport from Baltimore on Wednesday was caught on camera by a passenger, CBS Los Angeles reports.

In the cellphone video, women can be seen pulling hair and at least one punch was thrown.

It all started, witnesses said, after the plane had landed and a few passengers were playing their music loudly.

Other passengers asked them to turn the volume down. From there, tensions rose and the passengers came to blows.

"I'd be really afraid," said LAX traveler Shamaila Taj. "... A plane is probably the last place you'd want to do something like that ... I would freak out more so than anything else. I would be scared out of my mind because you're stuck on a plane. There's nowhere else you can go."

Flight attendants and passengers were able to quickly diffuse the fight, witnesses said, and no one was seriously hurt.

Airport police and the FBI also arrived on the scene. No arrests were made, but one person was cited.
