Unruly Delta passenger tried to open exit door in flight, complaint alleges

Delta flight security incident leaves 3 injured Cabin crew smashed two bottles of wine on passenger's head to

A Florida man caused chaos when he tried to open the exit door on a plane mid-flight, but a flight attendant hit him with a wine bottle as several passengers helped restrain him.

Federal Bureau of Investigation special agent Caryn Highley said in a probably cause statement on Friday that during the disturbance, Hudek punched on flight attendant twice in the face and struck at least one passenger in the head with a red dessert wine bottle.

According to the FBI, Joseph Hudek IV, 23, emerged from the lavatory and "lunged toward the forward right exit door of the aircraft, grabbed the handle" and tried to pull it open.

Highley wrote that one flight attendant then hit Hudek over the head with two wine bottles.

"According to the complaint obtained by the Times, Hudek did not appear "impacted" after the attendant struck him with the wine bottle and yelled, "'Do you know who I am?' or something to that extent".

Hudek's mother Linda Hudek, is a customer service representative and reservation agent at Delta, according to her Facebook profile.

In addition to the flight attendant, one other passenger suffered injuries that warranted a visit to the hospital after the plane landed in Seattle. However, it could have conceivably been thrown open while the plane was descending, but luckily it did not.

Hudek faces 20 years in prison for the incident. He was flying from Seattle to Beijing on a dependent first-class ticket to see a friend when he attempted to open the emergency door mid-flight.

The plane was forced to Seattle-Tacoma International Airport as a result.

In this incident, three people were injured aboard Delta flight 129, and this included two passengers and one crew member, informed the people present there. "The flight is scheduled to re-depart for Beijing later this evening".

In a statement to CNN, the airline said a passenger was restrained and removed from the flight because of a "security incident" onboard.

The FBI told Sea-Tac officials there is no information that the incident is a national security threat.

The two people also initially said the Boeing 767 returned to the airport under a Department of Defense escort.

Lt. Commander Joe Nawrocki, a NORAD spokesman, clarified jets were ready on the runway but never took off. Air traffic control recordings from LiveATC.net indicated F-15s at Portland International Airport were preparing to meet the Delta flight but never departed.
