Poster boy for Bro Culture, hope his butt hurt heals.

He was escorted off the plane.

Directly to a holding cell, I hope. I can’t assume this because he’s a white male.

My guess is he went straight to Sbarro and swiped the condiments tray to the floor to demonstrate his alpha male status.

My guess is he went to jail.

Maybe he’d like his mommy to take him for his shots, and turn in the paperwork for him, like when he was a baby and vaccinated for mumps and measles…

Weren’t we promised duct-tape? Duct tape him to mummytown and stick him on a baggage claim conveyor to go round and round until his threats to all and sundry stop (“not cool dude… it was originally ‘duck tape’”)

So that’s what’s happened to Scumbag Steve. It’s been a while.

Was he arrested? Was he put on the no-fly list? And if not, why not?

The saga of yet another soon-to-be-unemployed Fine Gentleman…

Can’t decide if this is merely assault, or making a terroristic threat.
If he refused to wear a mask, then why was he allowed on the airplane?

I hope he has to sit on a foam doughnut for the rest of his days.

Thanks for demonstrating that a mask would have prevented potentially toxic spittle from flying around the cabin.

IANAL but from what i could find it’s likely considered Assault. He’s also threatening to doxx the passengers, which i don’t think he’d taken seriously for but its possible he could have related charges added (doubtful tho).

Is there a link to a video or article or anything?

The odd thing is the video starts off with him wearing his mask. So I am not sure that mask wearing was in fact the issue.

According to articles I can find (which all seem to be copied nearly verbatim from each other, of course) he refused to take off his mask four times and wouldn’t hang up his cell phone. That’s it. Absolutely no mention of what happened to him after being escorted from the flight, so presumably they gave him a stern finger-wagging and released him to do it all over again in the future.

Agreed, he needs to be charged with “failing to follow instructions of flight crew” or whatever it’s actually called. That carries a hefty fine. I don’t know if they end up on a “no fly” list but they definitely should.

I saw that there was a move by one airline to share “no fly” lists between airlines, haven’t heard anything about it since.

Personally, I’m not stepping on a plane until they require proof of vaccination.

As a sidenote, anyone who is asked to evacuate an aircraft and leave their luggage behind, but grabs their luggage anyway: big fine, put no fly list.

It amazes me that there are people that wake up in the morning and think to themselves, “this is it, this is the day I am going to get myself banned from air travel, lose out on the money I spent for these tickets, and spend the night in jail in lieu of where I am supposed to fly to. Momma’s gonna be so proud!”

It’s hard enough for me, (still!!) being a NY Mets fan… but with that shithead wearing a team cap…!!!

I long ago gave up on trying to understand the type of people who live their lives as human grenades.

On the plane I hear ‘em scream
The bizarrest story ever seen
Out of his mind, this guy
Lost his ability to fly
How could he be so smartless?
Oh, how could he be so smartless?
