I am usually happy to see a gay go to jail But this is ridiculus. The guy is looking at 7 years for what? Hes fired that should be enough. No reason this guy should be in jail.

Having worked in the service industry before I can see how this guy went crazy. Some people are frickin idiots.

Not everything that happens on a plane deserves the death penalty.
You cant say Bomb on an airplane! Bomb Bomb bomb Bomb

Bravo dude.. good job! -- while I support you on what you did. I have met some flight attendants that treat passengers like crap as well. I hate when the plane has not stopped and you hear cell phones going off.. people rustling around and grabing their stuff. If they are in that much of a hurry they should have taken an earlier flight.

$2,500 bail? You get more bail for a jaywalking ticket.

Make his day. Put him and Lindsay Lohan in the same jail cell.

It's in the Federal court since it's an airplane, hence FAA rules...Federal jurisdiction. Anywho-she needs her ass kicked and she clearly is guilty of assault and battery. Put that crazy bitch in jail and give this guy a raise.

It amazes me the judicial system in this country. Charlie Sheen can hold a knife to his wife's throat and threaten her life and gets a stint in a posh rehab. Mel Gibson can beat the mother of his child and due to his celebrity status everyone, including the prosecution questions the alleged charges. This gentleman was doing his job and is facing charges for some jack#@s assulting him!!! How in the world do we justify 7 years for telling someone off. This simply shows what money and fame can buy a person. Cudos to this fella for standing up for himself as well as his fellow attendents!!! Good luck with the legal battle. You have many people in your corner.

Hey- how about charging this female passenger with assult? That is more fitting for how this all went down. Surely, there were enough witnesses to this incident. I am pretty mild mannered, but if that chick pulled that crap on me- I would have given her a serious beat down. She got off easy- and is now trying to make the most of her 3 minutes of fame.

When I got mad at work, I flung open the door and went outside for a walk too. What's the problem here?

I'm with Steven.
Arrogant passengers, full of self-importance and entitlement, feel above common-good rules and do whatever they feel like. If the plane had just hit a flock of geese and was on the verge of trying a landing on the Hudson River and this puff-fluff head did whatever pleased her, she could have put passengers in danger.
Steven was just doing the job; his reaction was less than ideal but showed that he is occasionally flawed. He is like the rest of us, imperfect.
