It’s actually kind of sad. And funny.

Photos of the wasted passenger en route from Iceland to New York surfaced on the web awhile ago, depicting him gagged and restrained to his seat after he groped and spit on several people, all while screaming that the plane was going down.

Now there’s a video of him squirming and moaning despite the layers of duct-tape over his mouth and the zip ties and tape binding his body. Apparently, 46-year-old Gudmundur Karl Arthorsson downed several bottles of duty-free liquor about two hours into the six-hour flight. Then, two hours before the plane was scheduled to land, he became verbally abusive, then violent, even trying to choke out the woman next to him, according to accounts from fellow passengers via the New York Post.

Once the plane landed, he was taken into custody for drunk and disorderly conduct, then to the hospital to be treated for alcohol poisoning.

Ultimately, no charges were filed against him. I guess four hours of bondage and a lifetime of humiliation is punishment enough.
