A British man who was denied an alcoholic drink aboard a flight to Palma de Mallorca because he was too drunk went on a rampage — and bit off part of his traveling companion’s ear, according to a report.
The 29-year-old first tried to open a fridge containing booze and then swiped a drink from another passenger before the flight from Birmingham touched down at Palma’s s airport on the Spanish island late last week, The Sun reported.
While members of the Civil Guard spoke to the crew about the man’s actions, a fight broke out in the cabin.
“As officers were taking down details of what had occurred by the entrance to the plane, they saw a fight had broken out inside,” the Civil Guard said in a statement.
“They entered the aircraft and saw the detainee attacking another passenger after biting off part of his right ear. He was overpowered and arrested,” it added.
The injured passenger – described as the drunken suspect’s friend – was taken to a local for treatment, as were officers who were hurt in a scuffle during the arrest.
The suspect, who was charged with the alleged offense of causing injury, has not been named. The airline also has not been identified.
The Civil Guard said in a statement that it is “responsible for security and public order in all the facilities of the restricted area of the airports, as well as inside the aircraft both arrival and departure.”
