Drunk Passenger Punches Flight Attendant Who Refused to Serve More Booze

 From KTLA5:

A Lakewood man who allegedly punched a flight attendant while drunk aboard a weekend international flight into LAX faced a federal criminal charge on Monday.

Edgar Nafarrette Nonga, 53, was on Philippine Airlines flight 112 from Manila to Los Angeles when the flight crew and at least five passengers restrained him after he became irate when he was refused more alcoholic drinks, according to the U.S. Department of Justice.

In addition to punching a flight attendant (twice), he unsuccessfully attempted to rip his tray table off the back of the seat in front of him.  Imagine having him behind you!

Here’s some video from the plane after the incident, plus a mash-up of photos taken.

As a former bartender, I’ve seen people get pretty angry at not being served.  Sometimes I’ve just handed people a tonic with no gin.  But it’s a touch situation and I was lucky to work at a place with great security.
