After an American Airlines pilot and flight attendant tried to get a drunk passenger under control, he refused to listen and sit down, so a pilot had to take him down.
Twenty five-year-old Michael Kerr (below) from Kentucky had three Jack Daniels whiskeys on board a flight after getting engaged to his partner, and when he demanded to exit the plane while it was still taxiing to its gate at Charlotte Douglas International Airport, a flight attendant calmly tried to get him to sit down and buckle his seat belt. He refused and started trying to shove his way off the plane.
The pilot finally had enough. After refusing to take a seat multiple times and still attempting to push his way through to the door, the pilot finally said, “You don’t put your hands on my flight attendant!” as he tackled Kerr to the floor.
And, of course, it was all caught on tape:
The pilot warned Kerr he’d regret this whole situation when it was posted on Facebook.
Out on $25,000 bond, Kerr was charged with being intoxicated and disruptive, assault on a female, communicating threats (he apparently at some point threatened to break the flight attendant’s jaw), and interfering with the duties of a flight crew or attendant. He is also banned from commercial flights, and it not allowed to have any communication with the attendant he attacked.
