NY Post – A JFK-bound passenger flying high on duty-free liquor had to be duct-taped to his seat to stop a midair rampage — which included shouts that the plane was going down, sources said yesterday. Gudmundur Karl Arthorsson, 46, tried to choke and grope several people and was spitting all over the cabin when passengers pounced on him about halfway into the Thursday flight from Reykjavik, Iceland. “He drank an entire bottle of hard liquor two to three hours into the flight,” said Manhattan resident Andy Ellwood, who posted on his blog a photo of Arthorsson taped to his seat. He tried to “choke the woman next to him” and was “screaming the plane was going to crash,” according to accounts from terrified passengers. “Just think of a typical drunk, when he starts taking fighting poses,” a police source said, adding that Arthorsson appeared to be “completely out of his mind.” The two Guatemalan men got fed up with Arthorsson’s antics and pinned him to his seat. An off-duty captain helped the good Samaritans hold him down while Icelandair’s flight crew closed in with green duct tape and Flex cuffs, which they used to bind the man around the ankles and knees. They duct-taped Arthorsson to his seat and gagged his big mouth — just for good measure. “Police took him when the plane landed,” Ellwood said.
I can’t stand being on a plane for more than like 5 minutes without being suicidal. No leg room, stewardess bashing your knees with the drink cart, fat people next to you, crying babies behind you. Imagine being fucking duct taped to the seat for like 6 hours? Thats literally hell on earth. I love the dude filming him “Does he have Tourette’s or something?” Uh no dude he’s been duct taped to his chair and had his mouth gagged, I’m pretty sure he’s probably screaming for help. The best part is how the dude is moaning and groaning and at the very end you here the “BING BONG” come over the intercom. Like “This is your captain speaking. Fucking drunk ass Gundmundr has been physically restrained and won’t be choking any more women. You are now free to roam about the cabin.”
PS – Any commenters still butthurt about me making a joke about comparing these passengers to the passengers to the “Lets Roll” passengers can get over themselves. I didn’t even say anything disrespectful about those guys. I’ve written so many things that were infinitely more offensive than that, its not even funny. Just a standard Barstool hyperbole you should all be used to. If you read that joke and came away thinking I don’t have respect for 9/11 you probably think Brent Musburger violated Katherine Webb and get upset when people use the word gay too.
