Unruly Passenger On UA 473 (ORD-SNA) 26 Sep

Thu Sep 27, 2012 4:24 pm

Apparently this guy was drunk and on prescription meds and tried to bite the passengers who restrained him.

I'm surprised that they didn't land sooner given how bad his conduct was! (This article doesn't say that they didn't divert, but on NBC News, the passengers restraining him say that they had to do so for 3 hours).

Wow.

The KTLA story has given the actor's publicist a million dollars worth of free publicity--the TV news report including multiple portaits and photos from the actor's chapbook and theatrical publicity account.

Anyone willing to bet that this was a staged publicity stunt ?

If so, I hope our nice 'Homeland' people shut it down fast.
