So don't pound a bottle of liquor during a flight! "If" a situation had arisen, tell me how safe it would be to have an overweight drunk passenger stumbling down a single aisle aircraft? He would, again, endanger every single passenger on the flight.
Did you not read my method of restraint mentioned above? Which incidentally is what is normally done, and has been done. That passenger would not move, not endangering anyone nor aircraft.
Remember, no one is justifying his actions, nor the need for restraint, just how he was restrained. I would not be surprised if he was not charged, because of how he was handled. I am guessing that had he been restrained properly, and the airline/crew charged him (which they may have been reluctant to do, as a result of his handling), he would be in jail right now.

We also have to think think there may not have been a airport within close proximity to divert too.
Within spitting distance of YQX.
