Too Drunk to Fly?

Passengers behaving badly can expect steep punishments

Air TravelersAir TravelersMaybe Nisreen Swedberg and Sarah Williams should be thankful they weren't arrested after being escorted off of a Southwest flight last week. A man from Texas is facing 10 months in prison after threatening a flight crew last June.

He's not trying to claim he's too pretty to fly, but 27 year old Jose Roman Jr. is reminding us that it's not just over-confident girls who get kicked off of airplanes.

Roman got aggressive on a Jet Blue flight from Houston to NYC when the flight crew refused to keep serving him booze. It quickly went from funny to frightening, but we're happy to say that no-one got hurt. Thanks to his bad behavior, the plane rerouted to Boston, where I'm sure his fellow passengers needed a stiff drink to deal with their delay-induced stress.

Keep in mind folks, mid-air dramatics buys you a minute of fame, but the arresting officers might decide to give you more than a slap on the wrist for your diva-esque behavior
