Ah, the friendly skies. Can we seriously go two months in this country without someone having to be restrained on board a plane?

Sounds like he was sleepwalking. Could have been diabetic too... so I would go easy on calling this guy names...

It sounds to me like the Passenger had a seizure, became disoriented and wanted to use the lav, but mistook the passenger door for the lav because he was so out of it. My prayers go out to this guy. Crew did a great job in handling the incident though.
