Flight attendant breaks wine bottle over unruly passenger's head

Delta flight security incident leaves 3 injured

Other passengers and crew members were kicked, punched and hit with a bottle during the fracas which started about an hour into a Delta Airlines flight from Seattle to Beijing.

One flight attendant and a passenger were taken to a hospital after suffering severe facial injuries, authorities said.

He now faces a felony charge of interfering with a flight crew, which carries a possible sentence of up to 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.

Photos from inside the plane reveal blankets and food strewn across the cabin floor while a spilled beverage can be seen dripping down the exit door. He did not speak at his hearing on Friday. His lawyer, Robert Flennaugh, declined to comment. One of the passengers on the flight was 23-year-old Joseph Daniel Hudek IV, who had a first-class ticket thanks to his mother, who works for Delta.

Hudek had been traveling on a "dependent pass", the complaint said.

UNESCO declares Hebron, West Bank, a world heritage site
She would not comment on whether Hebron had been recognised as Palestinian, saying the exact wording would be decided later. Another moment of intrigue saw Hacohen take the floor after the vote, only to keep being interrupted by his cell phone.

A flight attendant asked for assistance from other passengers and notified the cockpit of the situation, and the pilot made a decision to divert the flight back to Seattle.

According to the special agent's report, Hudek came out again only two minutes later when he suddenly lunged for the exit door and grabbing at the handle in an attempt to open it.

The attendants then signaled for help from several passengers and notified the cockpit by telephone, the complaint said.

A flight attendant then grabbed a 1-liter bottle of wine and hit Hudek on the head. At this point, he shouted: "Do you know who I am!?"

Two flight attendants grabbed Hudek to keep him from opening the door, and Hudek pushed them away. According to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, one flight attendant and one passenger suffered serious injuries to their faces in the fracas as fellow passengers and flight attendants teamed up to prevent Hudek from getting to the exit door.

Aircraft cabin doors can not be opened at high altitudes because of the differing pressures inside and outside the jet's cabin, and the Delta plane was cruising at high altitude, at 32,000 feet, when the incident happened.

The plane was forced to Seattle-Tacoma International Airport as a result.

Jones also noted that the man who instigated the incident was handcuffed and zip-tied by authorities, and taken through the airport terminal in a wheelchair.

But he remained "combative and noncompliant", overturning the wheelchair in the middle of the airport, KIRO reported.

Delta flight 129 landed safely at 7:10 p.m., and Hudek was arrested.

United Nations designates Hebron tomb revered within Jewish faith as Palestinian heritage site
Hebron was divided between Israeli and Palestinian control under a 1997 agreement which saw Israel withdraw from 80% of the city. Jabari argued that he did not recognize Jewish ties to the Old City.

All 210 people on board deplaned. Their injuries were serious, but non-life threatening injuries, according to Delta.
