The guy stood up to someone that was being a real a%% and left a plane that was already stopped. Who cares which exit he took. What a waste of taxpayers money. Oh but I guess they have to make an example out of this guy cuz other people might get the idea to stand up to the jerks in this world. What a sick society we live in.

The guy broke the law. It is a fairly simple concept to understand. He deserves to be prosecuted for whatever crime he has committed. He had the opportunity to post bail so it's not as if he's being mistreated by being sent to Riker's.

The lady who hit him on the head, if it was intentional, should also be held accountable. It's not against the law to be a jerk...it is however against the law to do what this man did. So stop going all Mandela over a guy who clearly just lost his cool and then committed a crime.

On a side-note that is definitely one of the most epic ways to quit a job ever.

BS! The ignorant woman who caused all of this should be the one reprimanded and sentenced. We want to see her pay the price for her actions. I wish I had been on that flight. Her identity would have been published everywhere by now

Of course he's gay. He might enjoy Rikers in the shower. Passengers do need beatings sometimes. What a way to quit. hard to beat.

Does anyone know what happened to the unruly female passenger? It's a federal offense to interfere with a flight attendants duties. I read that she also injured him with the overhead bin. I would think that her actions would warrant an arrest too!

Riker's Island? Seriously?? So the guy flipped out. No one got hurt and most of us got a good laugh out of this story.

Are they trying to make an example of him? How about making an example of that rude, disrespctful passenger?

And for the dumbass talking about this guy could give you AIDS by spitting in your coffee: 1)Being gay doesn't mean you automatically have AIDS 2)That's not how you catch it anyway. I hate people.

omg! some of these comments are as stupid as this situation. this guy gets in trouble because some woman verbally abuses him (which im sure its not the first time) then hits him with luggage. he never touches this woman and instead decides to exit the plane after its stopped..so what he went out the wrong exit. big deal charge him for the price of the freakin beer. he could of just went off on the woman but he decides to leave and he goes to jail?? where is the woman that caused all of this? he needs to file charges on her. oh and by the way so what if he is gay that means its ok to take abuse,,,grow up this is 2010

He has been released on bail, this morning. This guy quit in a way most only dream about. Though, u have to wonder if he is all there. A bit over the top, and to be honest, strange behaviour/reaction. I'm guessing he will be looking fro a different career, as I am sure no airline companies will hire him....: )
