Man who claimed to be a Calgary oil executive had to be restrained to his first-class seat
Seems the link above provides a poll for readers to take also ...
CBC has been known to not get things always 100% correct - so here is another report from the Calgary Herald ...
Such as the A319 in the picture?
Sexual assault is a serious charge. Sounds like a rough flight.
He is going to have a whole heap of trouble comin' his way
Can't fault AC for feeding him too much booze as the article says he "consumed liquor not served to him" so he must've brought his own aboard. Can't be fun to face a drunk idiot at 35,000...
I'm sure the AC staff acquitted themselves very well.
Deservedly so, if the reports are accurate. There's no excuse for the reported behaviour in any circumstances, but at 35,000 feet it's especially unacceptable.
Taser, taser, taser him!
While many complain about children on airplanes, plenty of adults can exhibit bad behavior...
Can we Taser both the children and the adults?
Nope, just the cat lovers
... and the saaaaga continues
"It's my understanding that he works overseas, and again I suspect that that's in the oil and gas sector somewhere, and he had been in the course of a very lengthy flight ... home when this incident occurred and of course there's obviously extreme fatigue involved in that as well," he said.
Meunz confirmed his client was sitting in business class.
"I know they sometimes have a tendency to overserve in an attempt to make their customers happy, but beyond that I'm not sure what his exact state of sobriety was at the time," he said.
He's blaming AC for overserving his client? Probably just legal posturing but sounds like pure speculation if he really doesn't know his client's state of sobriety at the time.
I've also suffered from extreme fatigue and never got so drunk I had to be restrained and arrested after the flight diverted.
So when have you had to be restrained and ... err never mind!
Agree on your first comment - trying to push the blame off of himself ... will be interesting to follow this further ...
So he's embarrassed. So sorry. If you don't want to be embarrassed don't do outrageous things on airplanes.
He could very well lose his job over this, too, now that the employer has been named.
Typical lawyer talks...they need to throw the book at these morons. It is time the rest of us stopped tolerating such nonsense and a few people need to go to jail for attitudes to change. that could have easily gotten more out of hand!
