Raging passenger rips out TV screen


An Etihad Airways flight from Singapore to Brisbane, Australia, was forced to turn back on Oct. 4 when a drunk man attacked the seatback TV in front of him. About 40 minutes into the trip, he punched and ripped out the monitor, reportedly asserting that there was a bomb behind it. The 30- something man then tried to rough up a male flight attendant, and other passengers grabbed and restrained him. He was arrested after landing in Singapore. Well, at least he wanted to save the plane. Or maybe he just doesn’t like two- star romantic comedies.
