A photo circulating online shows a man being duct-taped to a seat on a Frontier Airlines flight.
The man is accused of allegedly punching a male flight attendant.
He’s also accused of inappropriately touching two female flight attendants.
“During a flight from Philadelphia to Miami on July 31, a passenger made inappropriate physical contact with a flight attendant and subsequently physically assaulted another flight attendant,” Frontier Airlines said in a statement.
“As a result, the passenger needed to be restrained until the flight landed in Miami and law enforcement arrived.”
The 22-year-old man is Maxwell Berry from Ohio. He’s facing three counts of battery after being taken into custody Saturday in Miami.
Fox News covered the story:
While on the flight, Berry brushed an empty cup along the backside of a flight attendant and came out of the bathroom shirtless after spilling a drink on his clothing, ABC6 reported, citing police.

After staff helped Berry get another shirt from his luggage, he then is accused by police of groping the chests of female flight attendants before punching a male one in the face who had been called over to monitor him, ABC6 added.
“He was starting to get aggressive and basically attacked the male flight attendant,” passenger Alfredo Rivera told the station, capturing an image later purportedly showing Berry being duct-taped to a seat.
TRENDING 👇 Trump Critic Kathy Griffin Reveals Her Dark Past
Comedian Kathy Griffin gained political notoriety in 2017 after she “joked” about killing then-President Trump in a photo using a fake severed head of the former president.
The comedian, who is now 60, revealed she is battling stage one lung cancer. In an interview with ABC News, Griffin revealed much more about her past. Over the past four years, Griffin said her life spiraled after facing immense backlash for posing with a bloodied, severed fake head of then-President Trump. Griffin struggled with pill addiction and thoughts of suicide after posting the picture in 2017.
“I thought, ‘Well, I don’t even drink… Big deal, I take a couple pills now and again, who doesn’t?’” she told ABC News. “Also, my age was a big part of it. I mean, who bottoms out and tries to take their life at 59? It’s almost a joke, right, and by the way, someday, this will all be comedy. Trust me… I was laughing to stay alive. And what I found is I felt like if I can’t make others laugh, then there’s no purpose for me to live. There’s no reason for me to live.”
“I just felt there was impending doom,” she said. “I was already starting to think … it was time for me to go. And I was certainly being told by an awful lotta people it’s time for me to go.” More from Fox News:
After an apology and a subsequent rescinding of that apology, Griffin embarked on the cheekily titled “Laugh Your Head Off” tour in 2017. She noted that it was around that time that she was introduced to pills, leading to a behind-the-scenes battle that would ultimately lead to a suicide attempt…
She was first prescribed Provigil by a doctor. That was soon followed by a prescription to Ambien to help her sleep followed by painkillers to help her manage various injuries. The star says that her dependence on pills “got out of control very rapidly.”
Her addiction quickly led to thoughts of suicide. She says that her life was dedicated to getting on stage and showing people how resilient she was. However, amid the immense backlash from the Trump photo, she revealed that she started to feel her critics were right and that there was no next chapter in her career or life.
