A TransAtlantic Icelandair flight from Iceland to New York became an internet sensation for this drunkard. A 46yo passenger (no name released) drank ALL his duty-free liquor and became "unruly". He had to be duct taped and gagged onto his seat. Now we know what happens to fat, drunk and stupid onboard!
A passenger who became unruly after allegedly drinking too much alcohol had to be taped to his seat on a trans-Atlantic flight, witnesses and authorities said.
A startling photo of the subdued man ended up on a blog run by New York businessman Andy Ellwood, who said he received the picture from an acquaintance who witnessed the incident.
“My friend was on the flight and he sent me the photo because we like to trade travel war stories,” Ellwood told NBC News.
His friend did not want to be identified or talk with the media, Ellwood said, but he recounted the story to him in detail.
The passenger “drank all of his duty free liquor on the flight from Iceland to JFK yesterday,” Ellwood wrote in his blog post.
“When he became unruly, (i.e. trying to choke the woman next to him and screaming the plane was going to crash), fellow passengers subdued him and tie(d) him up for the rest of the flight. He was escorted off the flight by police when it landed.”
The Port Authority of New York & New Jersey confirmed the incident. Link
At the end of the day, this drunken bastard was not charged! Why? The other passengers would decline to come forward, they were "reluntant to talk".
Pffft, these other passengers must NOT be Americans!
So, now we can add another +1 to the million uses of duct tape!
