Maxwell Berry, who was arrested at an airport in Miami, is alleged to have groped two flight attendants and then gotten into a physical altercation with a third.
This all took place aboard a Frontier Airlines flight traveling from Philadelphia to Miami. The man has been charged with three counts of battery. The passenger is accused of inappropriately touching two female flight attendants and punching a male attendant on Saturday. The flight crew then restrained the unruly passenger and used tape to ensure he stayed seated for the remainder of the flight.
Frontier initially said the crew was suspended because the passenger wasn't restrained using the proper procedures.
The airline has now told multiple news outlets that the crew is on paid leave pending an investigation.
