Passenger That Groped, Punched Flight Attendants Taped To Seat
An Ohio man ended up taped to his seat by other passengers on a Frontier Flight after allegedly assaulting and groping flight attendants mid-flight.
Maxwell Berry, 22, was arrested when the plane landed and could face three battery charges in the case.
Video from the incident was instantly viral after it was shared. He can be heard yelling "My parents are worth $2,000,000."
Berry was on the flight from Philadelphia to Miami on July 31st, according to the Miami-Dade Police Department.
According to the police report, Berry ordered three alcoholic beverages from a flight attendant before brushing the empty cup along her backside.
Then, when he got a new drink, he spilled it. When he returned from cleaning himself up in the bathroom, he wasn't wearing a shirt. An attendant helped him retrieve a new shirt from his carry-on.
He then allegedly proceeded to walk down the plane and grope a second flight attendant's breasts before placing his arms around two attendants and grabbing their breasts.
Once a third flight attendant took over the monitoring of Berry, he punched that attendant in the face, starting a fight.
Nearby passengers restrained Berry before taping him to his seat.
