This is the image of an airplane passenger posted on Reddit by a fellow traveler. The man was allegedly so drunk on his flight from Reykjavik, Iceland, to John F. Kennedy Airport in New York, that he had to be bound and gagged with duct tape for the duration of the flight.

Here’s what was posted on the Reddit thread about the incident:

He drank an entire bottle of some duty free alcohol. Then he tried grabbing the women who were sitting next him screaming that we’re going to crash. Finally he started chocking a guy next to him and that’s when a huge crowd restrained him and tied him up. This was 2 hours into a 6 hour flight.

Edit: Did I mention that he was spitting on random people on the plane!

According to the Icelandic publication MBL (via New York Post and Google Translate), the tape was part of safety equipment on board the aircraft to “deal with such situations,” Guðjón Arngrímsson with the airline said.

“When that happens the person is then monitored all the time, ” Arngrímsson said.

The New York Post reported that the man would not be prosecuted for his actions.
