His bad behavior included "repeatedly shouting, swearing and stumbling around, while spitting at those who tried to calm him." Eventually he assaulted a member of the cabin crew and demanded to know why they wouldn't serve him any more drinks. What an inscrutable mystery that must have been.
His overarching crimeand yes, of course he was arrested as soon as the plane landedinvolved that piece of broken glass that he was clutching, and with which he threatened to stab the pilots. Turns out that airline safety officials take a dim view of that sort of thing, and so police were waiting for him at the terminal.
We'd pause to ask how an obviously drunk and abusive passenger managed to get a de facto weapon on board an international flight, but let's not water down what this post is actually about. And that is, what a monumental, unbelievable, inexcusably grating tool this guy is.
