MIAMI INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT, FLA. (WSVN) - A problematic passenger was captured on video getting taped to his seat on a flight to South Florida.
Cellphone video captured passenger Maxwell Berry yelling at a flight attendant, “Shut the [explitive] up! You’re a [explitive]!”
The hostile situation unfolded on a Frontier Airlines jet heading from Philadelphia to Miami over the weekend.
Police said Berry groped two female flight attendants before attacking a male attendant.
Passengers recorded videos of Berry as the situation escalated.
Those on board the plane said the 22-year-old was out of control after several drinks, becoming aggressive which eventually led to him being restrained.
Berry was seen being wrapped to a seat in duct tape until the flight landed at Miami International Airport.
He is now facing three counts of battery.
Frontier Airlines released a statement that reads:
“During a flight from Philadelphia to Miami on July 31, a passenger made inappropriate physical contact with two flight attendants and subsequently physically assaulted another flight attendant. As a result, the passenger needed to be restrained until the flight landed in Miami and law enforcement arrived. Frontier Airlines maintains the utmost value, respect, concern and support for all of our flight attendants, including those who were assaulted on this flight. We are supporting the needs of these team members and are working with law enforcement to fully support the prosecution of the passenger involved.
