If you are on a flight from where ever, and halfway through the flight you come across a d/p (disgruntled passenger) that is yelling, screaming, banging on the walls etc. How would you handle this situation if there were no air marshals on board and you were a flight attendant or a concerned pax? Has anyone ever come across a hysterical passenger? And what are they actually charged with? I personally have never come across one, but I would like to here from you if this has happened! Thank in advance
I found this article recently:
LOS ANGELES (AP) - Airplane passengers subdued and then duct-taped a man who was pacing the aisle and reading loudly from the Bible during a flight from Hawaii, police and witnesses said.
No one was injured and the man was handed over to authorities after the plane landed at Los Angeles International Airport early Sunday, said Sgt. Carl Sansbury of the airport police.
Brian Eager, 36, of Austin, Texas, was held for 72 hours for a psychological examination, FBI Special Agent Matt McLaughlin said.
Sansbury said he didn't know what prompted the outburst on the United Airlines flight from Honolulu. He said the FBI was investigating.
Passengers and a U.S. immigration and customs agent who was traveling for personal reasons helped restrain Eager but he managed to slip out of handcuffs, McLaughlin said.
Eager could face a federal charge of interfering with a flight crew, Sansbury said.
