He groped breast of flight attendant: Watch how the passenger is tackled





He groped the breast of one flight attendant. Touched the buttocks of another. And for good measure, punched a third in the face. 

Maxwell Berry, 22, on a Frontier Airlines flight from Philadelphia to Miami, was thereafter pinned down on his seat and taped, leaving him bound to his seat this week. 

On arrival at Miami international airport, Berry was taken into custody and charged with multiple counts. 

According to NPR, he was caught on camera shouting at the flight crew and other passengers: “My parents are worth more than f****** 2 million goddamn dollars!”

A video of the incident also shows Berry taking a swing at a male flight attendant during a physical altercation and passengers laughing as he continues to scream.

The video later shows the same male flight attendant securing Berry to his seat, using duct tape, as passengers laugh and cheer in the background.

The clip, posted on Twitter by an ABC News journalist, has been viewed over 12 million times. (Warning: the video contains profanity.)

Another video posted by a Twitter user who identified as a passenger on the flight has been seen over 3 million times.

Frontier’s action over the incident has also drawn scrutiny with the airline first announcing it had suspended the crew since they had not followed “proper policies for restraining a passenger”.

Facing a backlash, the airline reportedly retracted the statement saying it was “rushed” and added the crew had been sent on paid leave according to the rules pending an investigation.”

“Frontier Airlines maintains the utmost value, respect, concern and support for all of our flight attendants, including those who were assaulted on this flight,” an airline spokesperson said in a statement.
