KABC Los Angeles – A passenger was arrested after video captured him punching a flight attendant during a flight from Mexico to Los Angeles Wednesday.
Video of the mid-air assault showed the passenger punch the flight attendant in the back of the head while they were in the aisle.
A 30-second video posted on social media showed the flight attendant talking to the passenger before turning his back. The suspect then walks toward the attendant and punches him before walking away.
The incident happened on American Airlines Flight 377. …
A passenger on the plane told Eyewitness News … that the suspect was restrained by other passengers and his hands were zip tied.
Before the assault, Kevin said the suspect began to whisper and said “There are 10 killers on the plane.”
“About that time the female flight attendant heard this and ran him back into coach. He sat there for a few minutes, and then the male flight attendant returned and confronted the guy,” Kevin said. “And the part of the video you see with him getting hit in the back of the head is him turning around, coming back to the front of the plane, and the guy just jumped up and hit him.”
The unruly passenger was arrested by law enforcement when the plane landed at LAX.
Saying this was a sucker punch is pushing it. It was merely a slap because this dude hits like my 3-year-old nephew.
In any case, you should NEVER lay hands on someone trying to do their job. Flight attendants have it hard enough, especially with all the masking we have had to do during fights. I can’t even imagine the airport assholes they have to deal with. Essentially, flight attendants are doing God’s work right now.
The man in question was arrested upon landing and immediately had his anus searched.
More people should think about their anus being searched before lashing out like this. It would cut these airline attacks in half.
