You’re in my f*cking custody right now. Do you know what that means? I will forcibly remove your a** from here. Your a** is leaving now. Let’s f*cking go…. Hey, listen to me, I got your f*cking passport.
You’re leaving now. I’ll break your f*cking arm. You better believe I’m f*cking threatening you. The United States government needs you out of this country right now, do you understand?
According to CBS News, Shi called his brother Baihan Fu who contacted the police who found McConkey, Hoser and Shi at the airport.
