Drunk man on flight to New York detained and taped to seat

A drunken passenger on a New York-bound intercontinental flight was duct-taped to his seat by his fellow passengers after attacking one woman and screaming the plane was going to crash.

New York man Andy Ellwood posted the picture to his Tumblr along with an account of the incident.

“Passenger drank all of his duty free liquor on the flight from Iceland to JFK yesterday. When he became unruly, (i.e. trying to choke the woman next to him and screaming the plane was going to crash), fellow passengers subdued him and tie him up for the rest of the flight. He was escorted off the flight by police when it landed. “

The drunk passenger was spitting on other people and threatening them about two hours into the flight. Passengers and crew had enough and gagged the man and taped him to his chair for the remainder of the flight so he could stop his unruly behavior, the New York Post reports.

“These tapes are part of the safety equipment on board all our machines in order to deal with such situations. When that happens the person is then monitored all the time, “says Bjarnason Arngrímsson, Information Icelandair

The man was arrested and taken to a hospital in Queens, New York when the flight landed at JFK.

Alternate Report: “Port Authority police received reports of an individual being restrained on a flight,” Port Authority spokesman Ron Marsico said. “They went to the gate and they met the plane. [The man] appeared intoxicated.”  Marsico said the man was brought to a local hospital. He was not charged by police.
