A video, filmed on the July 21 flight from Lexington, Kentucky, to Charlotte, North Carolina, shows a flight attendant repeatedly asking Michael Kerr to sit down. He refuses and attempts to walk past her, prompting the pilot to emerge from the cockpit and force him to the ground.
“You don’t put your hands on my flight attendant,” the pilot can be heard saying.
According to FBI, Kerr allegedly threatened to break the jaw of one flight attendant, before he kicked a different attendant in the leg and shoved another to the floor. He had reportedly had three whiskeys on board the flight.
Kerr, of Kentucky, is facing numerous charges in the US District Court, including assaulting a female, and being intoxicated and disruptive.
