    A Russian plane had to make an emergency landing in Siberia on Sunday after a drunk passenger beat up a flight attendant in a dispute over the toilet, a police spokesman said.
    "The man was an economy class passenger and tried to use the business class toilet, which is prohibited. He had a spat with a flight attendant and punched him seven or ten times,” Siberian transport police spokesman Timur Kurbangaleyev said.

    The passenger, aged 45, was already drunk when he boarded the Moscow-bound plane in the Siberian city of Krasnoyarsk, police said.

    The plane had to perform an emergency landing in the Siberian city of Novosibirsk, where the flight attendant was hospitalized with a head injury and bruises. The plane was refueled and took off about two hours later.

    No surprises here. Just Google "Russian drivers" and "video" to observe the fatal behavior of drunks in Russia. Would be a useful exercise to poll the males on the plane to learn who was sober. :eek:

    They should've thrown him off without landing. :D
