While he may not be Capt. Sully, an American Airlines put the beat down on a drunk passenger this week.
On an hour long flight from Charlotte from Lexington, Kentucky, a 25-year-old man and future lead singer of an Anthrax tribute band named Micheal Kerr decides that three whiskeys would help pass that grueling hour.
As the plane was taxing to the gate, Kerr got out of his seat, confronted a flight attendant and threatened to break her jaw, according to the Charlotte Observer. He then started to kick flight attendants in the leg. Well, as the wise man Ron Burgundy said, “That escalated quickly”
The unnamed pilot took matters in his own by taking a seatbelt and securing Kerr’s leg. The pilot said, “you don’t put your hands on my flight attendant!” As you see in the video, the drunk guy needed a Vulcan Neck Pinch.
Might I suggest to our hero pilot a better one-liner like “Get off my plane” or “Always bet on black.” Whoever you are, I hope he gets commended. The Scott Ian-looking mofo was clearly a danger to passenger safety.
As for Kerr, he was charged with intoxication, assault on a female (which is a specific crime in South Carolina), communicating threats and interfering with the duties of a flight crew or attendant. He was released on $25,000 bail and will be available to attend the next Donald Trump rally.
