Manley felt Ramirez's Great Dane was taking up too much space.
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. According to Orlando police, the aircraft landed in Florida and on the taxi ride to the gate is when Timothy punched the service dog and Hazel.
Everyone involved declined medical treatment at the airport, but Ms Ramirez says she wants to press charges.
Ms Ramirez, who is expecting her third child in just a few months, and her partner, who is also deaf, tried to tell the man off as best they could as the plane made its way to the gate.
However, Petrini said the entire incident took place because of a misunderstanding and said her husband hit the dog by mistake. Upon touchdown and taxiing, the canine reportedly wakened, at which level Manley punched it within the face.
"Unfortunately, the man [was] determined to leave so he ran through and punched my belly, then pushed my two daughters; they fell and cried so hard", Ramirez said.
Silva tackled Manley and held him down until police arrived.
In a written statement, Frontier Airlines said "the security of our passengers is our top priority". "Police were immediately notified to aid in de-escalating the situation", a Frontier spokesman said. "Upon deplaning Flight 1752 from Colorado Springs to Orlando, there was a confrontation between passengers".
Orlando Police Department spokeswoman Michelle Guido said the incident report has been handed over to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, which is handling the investigation since the altercation happened on the plane.
