Full story here: http://www.khou.com/news/Two-arrested-after-disturbance-on-Continental-flight-139932593.html Ooh! Sounds serious. I wonder what the "unruly" passenger did? Well, that might explain the need the spring into action by the other pax. Oh wait, what's this?. Bingo! I would be remiss if I didn't give the author full marks for managing to work in a favourite western stereotype there and for framing it perfectly - large, brutish Middle Eastern male vs. the petite american Flight Attendant. Mother Lode! We're talking O'Reilly, Hannity and the rest of the clan now. But I can't argue with the guy... The creator and whatever entity or process he/she/it may take, is indeed great. I suppose shouting it out loud is annoying to one's ear drums though, so go on... Excellent description of events - B-grade Hollywood movie with Chuck Norris in the making here. Guy sounds like a real bad-ass though. I imagine he's pretty tall, muscular and very menacing in appearance. Fair enough. No point flying an idiot - a large, muscular, dangerous one at that, hog-tied all the way to IAH. Anyone reading this could have told them that, but still, congratulations to the TSA on stating the obvious and good job not jumping on the racist stereotype bandwagon. You can't make up the overblown reaction to what was a minor passenger kerfuffle with a FA. BTW, see the video on the KHOU website in order to ascertain how much of a threat the individual actually posed.
