Basically, the guy needed to use a bathroom BAD (and we've all been there). He was flying coach and a drinks cart blocked the aisle. The attendant refused to let him access the bathroom. He tried to wait it out, but finally decided to use the business class bathroom when he felt things getting, shall we say, imminent. The flight attendant put up her arm to stop him from using the bathroom. His side is he just pushed by and used the bathroom, her side is he twisted her arm and pushed her down. When the plane landed he was arrested and jailed for two nights. Charges may yet be filed.
This is a huge fear of mine when flying, that I won't be able to access the bathroom if needed. I never thought that trying to access the bathroom could land me in jail!! All you need is an unsympathetic flight attendant (and with the stress they are all under nowadays, most of them are) and you could be facing an embarrassing nightmare. Almost worse than the couple of days in jail, the guy's name is all over the news feeds. I heard the story on Fox and Friends while waiting for a car repair this morning. Poor guy!!
