Last Friday, a flight from London to Paphos, Cyprus, collided with passengers and crew. The 22-year-old explained that he had to see his family for the first time in a very long time and was drunk.
Very nervous, it was noisy and annoying to the other passengers, who became annoyed by it. Anthony Maxted then asked for wine from a steward, who told him to sober up. “He started punching several people, including the crew members, who were trying to nab him. A lot of people were crying because it was scary, worse than any video you usually see online,” said a passenger.
Some locked themselves in toilets, while others needed an ambulance on the tarmac to treat their injuries. In the end, the man was subdued by six people, but the pilot’s decisions had to divert the flight to Greece. The person was arrested on the spot and released on bail. He will be tried in Greece for the charges against him.
“He will be called for trial but the charges against him are very serious. If things go wrong for him, an Interpol arrest warrant will be issued,” our British colleagues know from a source familiar with the matter. Anthony accepts all the facts equally, but still runs the risk of heavy penalties.
