A passenger who became unruly after allegedly drinking too much alcohol had to be taped to his seat on a trans-Atlantic flight, witnesses and authorities said.
A startling photo of the subdued man ended up on a blog run by New York businessman Andy Ellwood, who said he received the picture from an acquaintance who witnessed the incident.
“My friend was on the flight and he sent me the photo because we like to trade travel war stories,” Ellwood told NBC News.
His friend did not want to be identified or talk with the media, Ellwood said, but he recounted the story to him in detail.
