Is it possible the pilot may be diabetic? When your blood sugar gets low you can exhibit erradic behavior that can be interpreted as intoxication.

Just heard this on the radio. Tackling and arrest are not appropriate responses to a medical emergency. It sounds as if the pilot was having a stroke or seizure of some sort. (In a seizure, restraint can be even more damaging.)

A complete and accurate story should be forthcoming. The linked article, and the radio report I heard, were not complete, and partially contradictory. (Off-duty pilot flying? or just involved in restraining? Arrested, not arrested?)

Finding a doctor to pass that medical is like the average persons chances of winning the lottery.

He would have had to prove beyond a doubt that he had it in control,over a long period of time and on an ongoing basis.

Listen carefully near the end of the second video- sounds like the guy filming is confronted by his seat mate after one of the FA's told passengers taking photos was unnecessary- starts to get a little heated.

It's "allegedly" on the link provided in the OP. I can't watch it.

I'm a lilttle worried about the "restrain him" order. I didn't realize FAs had law enforcement authority. Maybe they need to, but with that they require some training in legal issues and procedures.

Large men restraining someone having a seizure or breakdown. It's 1920s psychiatric medicine all over again.

Oh, come on. Maybe he is. But don't let that excuse him from running up and down the aisle of the plane screaming, 'Say your prayers!'

Thankfully there is video of this so people can decide for themselves whether this is 'diabetes' at work.

Do we know that he is diabetic ?

People who have diabetic seizures act in different ways. Alot of times slurred speeech is one of the signs. Most have no reccollection of what they say or do. It can can easily be mistaken for being outright drunk. I've seen it myself.

If you have diabetes the best you can get is a third class medical certificate if you use insulin. And that takes quite some doing.
Your local FAA medical examiner can't grant the certificate OKC has to grant it after carefully reviewing your particular case each and every time you are up for renewal.

So based on that since most ATP licenses require a First Class medical, I think he would be out.

It could be that perhaps he had a mini stroke or similar or some kind of neurological event that caused this situation.

And on no! It was a flight 191!!!

Unlikely even then. In fact, it would be incompetent of the doctor to approve a type-I diabetic to fly an airliner.

Reading the articles and seeing it on the news, he started to act bizzare after he left the restroom. From what I have seen, and know, of diabetes, which isnt a great deal, I dont think a diabetic siuation gets that bad so quickly. However, I stand corrected.

I hate to say it, but it makes me wonder if some kind of drug reaction, maybe even street drugs, is involved. It just seems that everything changed so suddenly.

Could it be another bipolar situation? We may never know the answer to this one.

It's great that passengers have proven time and time again that they are always willing to come to the help of a cabin crew member during an emergency. However, it is quite troubling that the automatic response to any on board disturbance these days is, "Tackle him/her!" The flight attendant who made that request over the PA system may have just freaked out and not known what to do... It is too soon to tell what happened but it seems like requiring four passengers to tackle a crew member having a medical emergency was not only unnecessary but wreck less.

In the recent AA incident where a mentally ill F/A had a mental breakdown the remaining F/As and an off duty pilot did try to verbally calm her down before resorting to physical force. It doesn't seem like any attempt was made here to establish what was actually happening before resorting to physical force.

This might come as a shock to many on this board, but pilots and flight attendants ARE human after all! We are not Gods, like some passengers think we are, and we are susceptible to lots of things in life, just like everyone else is. Who knows, he might have just lost a kid, or was handed divorce papers, or could have a serious, undiagnosed medical issue. The fact is, the flight landed safely and the system worked. Until we know more about the situation, give they guy a break!
