Well, talk about instant justice – and from a pilot nonetheless!
An American Airlines pilot jumped into defend a flight attendant after a disruptive passenger pushed her. The man was causing a disturbance while drunk, and became aggressive quickly. He placed his hands on a flight attendant, threatening to break her jaw – and that’s when the pilot intervened.
“I said take a seat, sir,” the pilot sternly orders the man.
“Noooooooo,” the man replied. “I do’t want to take a seat—”
“I don’t care what you want to do, you’re going to take a seat right now,” the pilot shot back.
The video cuts to the drunk getting physical with the flight attendant who is trying to stop him from exiting plane.
Then we see the pilot of the flight taking the drunk to the floor and shouting: “Enough! You don’t put your hands on my flight attendant!”
Watch the video below, courtesy of Bradenton:
According to the Charlotte Observer, the drunk appeared in US District Court on charges of being intoxicated and disruptive, assault on a female, communicating threats and interfering with the duties of a flight crew or attendant.
He was released on $25,000 bond, but has been told he cannot fly on commercial airlines and cannot contact the flight attendant he attacked.
Serves him right.
Now, how do I get this guy to be my pilot?
