Yan Linkun's actions on Feb. 19 were captured by security cameras at the Kungming Changshui Airport, ABC News reported.

The videotape shows him picking up a metal stand and trying to smash the glass doors leading to the boarding area. When he was unable to break the glass, he smashed the counter at the gate.

Three security guards watched without taking action. Another passenger finally intervened and persuaded Yan to calm down.

Yan is a member of a government advisory board in Yunnan province and told Shanghai Daily he had not behaved well.

"I failed to be a qualified political adviser, as well as a good father," Yan said.

He also apologized to the airport and offered to pay for any damage.

Police are investigating but Yan had not been charged with anything as of Wednesday morning. Yan was suspended from his job.
