Drunken Brit assaults cabin crew

A father of three children hit a cabin crewman in the face after verbally abusing other passengers. The situation on the plane escalated from verbal insults to physical aggression to the crew and ended with the man in handcuffs and arrested by the police in Manchester and unable to enjoy the bachelor party to which he was going in Tenerife.

JG was drunk on boarding the plane. He refused to show his boarding pass as he “knew where he was going to sit,” a seat next to the emergency exit that was not his. After a crew member asked him to go to his seat, he began to shout, refusing to lower the tone of the conversation: “I will scream if I feel like” he shouted.

The situation didn’t stop there. The flight attendant repeatedly asked him to move his jacket, which he refused and he also insulted the passenger sitting next to him. The flight attendant sat down and began to make notes of the situation, at which point J.G. punched him, causing him to hit his face on the plane’s door and he had to leave the flight.

The accused has previous convictions for 25 crimes, including possession of a handgun. During the trial which occurred in May 2018, his lawyer said that “he is a family man and a devoted father. When he took the flight he was suffering from grief because his daughter had attempted suicide two weeks earlier”. JG also claimed it was due to  “stress for taking care of his children.”

The judge was not impressed and said “you behaved like a drunk and abusive thug with those around you. You went up to the assistant and hit him in the face for doing his job… It’s unforgivable.”

Finally, he was freed, although he is obliged to pay a fine of approximately €500.

Not sure why this has surfaced today it must be a quiet news day. Source: La Provincia
