A Florida man was slapped in handcuffs on Thursday after verbally attacking an American Airlines flight attendant.
82-year-old George Alexander began harassing the airline employee as she was serving beverages to customers on a flight traveling from Philadelphia to Fort Myers.
The deranged man allegedly jabbed the attendants back and demanded her to move, News-Press reported.
The arrest report said Alexander then yelled at the woman that she was “too big for this job” and “you’re too fat for this, overweight” after hurling racial language towards her.
Lee County Port authorities arrested the man at Southwest Florida International Airport once the plane landed. He was charged with suspicion of battery and interference of aircraft operations but was released on a $1,000 bond.
Alexander is set to appear in court on June 26.
