A Delta Air lines’ passenger is facing several years behind bars after he assaulted an airline employee and disrupted the flight.
The incident occurred on a flight from Atlanta, Georgia to Phoenix, Arizona
earlier this month.
According to the report, flight attendants asked the suspect, Christopher Morgan, to put his seat belt on and bring his seat into an upright position.
Morgan was said to have refused the order, which prompted an employee to lean over and push the button to bring the chair upright.
During the flight, Morgan was served an alcoholic beverage but employees refused to serve him a second one.
Morgan then became upset and began cursing at the flight attendant. He also called the attendant an anti-gay slur and threw ice at him.
The attendant walked away to call the pilot and inform them of the disturbance, and that’s when Morgan allegedly grabbed the phone and struck the attendant in the chest with it.
Once Morgan exited the plane, the FBI was waiting for him.
Morgan admitted to calling the employee the slur and told them that he is “homophobic.” He also told authorities that the flight attendant made him feel uncomfortable.
Morgan faces up to 20 years in prison for disrupting a flight.
