Passenger in Flight Attendant Scuffle due in Court
NEW YORK (AP) - A passenger accused of punching a JetBlue flight attendant who tried to stop him from drinking will be facing a judge in New York City. Antonio Ynoa is due in Brooklyn federal court on Monday.
Authorities say off-duty NYPD Officer Anibal Mercado subdued and handcuffed the intoxicated man during the incident early Sunday.
It happened while JetBlue Flight 832 was enroute from the Dominican Republic to Kennedy International Airport.
Ynoa faces charges of assault and interference with a flight crew.
The name of his lawyer was not immediately known.
