A crazy incident was reported where a man after having two drinks started acting up mid-flight and started to harass and grope female flight attendees and when told off by one male attendant, he was punched in the face. Not having much choice, the crew had to duct tape the guy to his seat and he was immediately taken under custody by police after the plane landed.
Frontier Airlines came up with an emergency solution to handle this crazy passenger on a recent flight- they duct taped him to his seat.
22-year-old Maxwell Berry was restrained after allegedly punching one flight attendant and inappropriately touching two others.
The incident got out of hand when Berry reportedly took two drinks during the flight and started misbehaving and inappropriately touching a female flight attendant who warned him to not touch her.
As per police reports, Berry then continued to harass a female flight attendant and spilled a drink on his shirt, went to the washroom, and came out wearing no shirt. He continued to group two female flight attendants.

The fellow passenger Alfredo Rivera continued to make the video of the violence that ensued.
A male flight attendant was asked to keep an eye on Berry following the sexual harassment, but that somehow resulted in Berry punching him.

As soon as the plane touched the ground, Berry was taken into custody and he is now facing three counts of battery for his drunken antics.
Frontier Airline confirmed the incident, noting that a passenger on a flight from Philadelphia “needed to be restrained until the flight landed in Miami.”
“The flight attendants will be, as required in such circumstances, relieved of flying pending completion of investigation of the events,” their statement reads.
A somewhat similar incident happened back in July when one American Airlines passenger was duct-taped after becoming desperate to get off the plane mid-flight and attacking crew members in an attempt to access the emergency exit. That woman was allegedly suffering from mental issues and was taken to the hospital upon landing.
