Drunk Man Duct Taped to Seat During Flight



During a flight from Iceland to New York, a male passenger became so intoxicated and aggressive that he had to be restrained to his seat for a majority of the flight.

Before boarding the flight, the man reportedly drank an entire bottle of licorice spirit Topaz. During the flight, the man groped the woman seated next to him and started screaming that the plane was going to crash. He also began spitting on fellow passengers and flight crew. Classy.

Then, when he began choking a man seated near him, the other passengers banded together, overpowered the man and restrained him to his seat with duct tape and plastic ties.

The man was arrested when the plane landed in New York city, but so far there are no charges brought against him.

The main reason this story blew up is due to Reddit user Mezane posting the above picture and then the Internet just erupted over this photo.

Icelandair‘s vice-president of corporate communications, Gudjon Arngrimsson, came forward confirming that the man was restrained on one of their airlines after his ‘aggressive behavior’ towards other passengers.

What would you do if a fellow passenger freaked out and started threatening to attack or started attacking passenger?


  1. I’d have seen if after tying and gagging him, I’d have put on on something terrible, maybe the Justin Beiber movie on loop? Or Human centipede.

  2. 350k people live in iceland…. every will know him when they see him. lucky for him that he will be charged in icelang and not the usa, he will pay a fine that is not so much and cant fly with them for some time if ever

  3. hmm what if he would have had to throw up lol and his mouth was covered with duct tape. Would not have worked out well in their favor then.
