    A LIBRARIAN was ordered to pay a €400 fine after an air-rage incident at the weekend during which three passengers had to restrain him intermittently over 90 minutes.
    Ennis District Court in Co Clare was told yesterday that that, at one stage, Harald Albrecht (32) made a lunge for a female flight attendant, but did not make contact.
    The Austrian Airlines flight from Washington to Vienna was forced to divert to Shannon airport at 7.05am on Saturday.
    Garda Noel O'Rourke told the court Mr Albrecht "had to be forcibly removed from the aircraft".
    "This was an incident out of character for Mr Albrecht but I can't conceive of a greater danger to people than what Mr Albrecht engaged in," Judge John O'Neill said.
    Gda O'Rourke said that Mr Albrecht had taken a sleeping tablet along with some wine and became agitated when refused more alcohol by the flight attendants.
