See this fucking guy? See this idiot? This brainless jerk-off got faced off the duty free liquor he had on him, according to a fellow passenger on the Icelandair flight from Iceland to New York City, and this is how bad he got.
I've heard of in-flight justice, but I thought that was just a taser from a flight marshal highly pissed someone just interrupted that flick with Queen Latifah and Dolly Parton. They hogtied him with plastic tie-offs and taped his ass to the seat. Even cooler, Icelandair confirmed that plastic ties and tape are standard on board flights for just such incidents, if need be.
This all started after the 46-year-old wingnut tried to choke the woman next to him and screaming that the plane was going to crash, because we all know how well people respond to that kind of nonsense anymore. The above picture is the result. After being escorted off the plane by police at JFK, the guy was taken to a local hospital. However, according to Port Authority of New York & New Jersey spokesman Ron Marsico: “He was not charged ... he’s free to go.”
What the hell is that? How the hell do you get drunk, disrupt a flight, and not get charged? Did this guy buy the optional in-flight diplomatic immunity from SkyMall or something? I call major bullshit. I'm not a very good flyer, so I think I can speak for a good portion of the flyers out there when I say each and every passenger oughta get a free shot if someone's gotta be taped down. One free shot right in the chops. I'm sure the odds of that happening could make a few people forget about some of the fees and other bullshit associated with air travel these days...
