Airline Passenger Sentenced to Prison for Fighting Onboard

A Korean Air passenger who fought with a flight attendant on board a plane bound for Guam from Seoul, South Korea was sentenced to 28 months and nine days in federal prison on Tuesday reports guampdn. Chief Judge Frances Tydingco-Gatewood’s punishment for passenger Kwon Woo Sung is a total of 36 months, including the past seven months he served under house arrest and in federal detainment. This leaves 28 months and nine days left on his sentence. Kwon, a dentist in South Korea, pleaded guilty to interfering with flight crew members and attendants. He was headed to Guam in April for vacation and ordered five beers in a 35-minute span before the crew decided not to serve him any more alcohol, according to court documents. After he smoked a cigarette in the plane restroom and admitted to it, he asked for another beer but was denied. Kwon then became angry and fought with the flight attendant, documents state. About five passengers had to help restrain him for about an hour until they landed in Guam.
