This man’s actions go beyond nerve, and surpasses any sense of entitlement. Timothy Manley, who was traveling on a Frontier flight from from Colorado Springs to Orlando with his wife and son on Friday took issue with a service dog who was traveling with its owners; a pregnant, deaf woman and her deaf husband.
So he didn’t just complain about it. When the plane landed, Manley punched the dog, a Great Dane named Zariel; who yelped, shook her head and hid under a seat, according to the Orlando Police Department.
The dog’s owner, Hazel Ramirez, 21, and her 30-year-old partner, Matthew Silvay, also deaf, tried to yell at Manley.
And look at what this entitled piece of you-know-what did then.
According to police, Manley got into Silvay’s face and punched Ramirez, who is 20 weeks pregnant, in the stomach. He also allegedly pushed the deaf couple’s two daughters who were traveling with them, Fox 13 reported.
Manley and Silvay got into a scuffle, and Silvay held him down while the flight attendants alerted the police. When the cops arrived Manley allegedly said, “It took you all long enough to get here.”
What apparently started it all is, as the plane started it descent and taxi to the gate, Manley had complained that he and his 56-year-old wife, Petrini, was allergic to dogs. He felt the service dog took up more space than necessary.
Why this fool would go so far as to take his issues out on the poor animal, and then on its pregnant owner, is jaw-dropping. People are clearly losing their minds.
Because the incident took place on an aircraft, the Orlando police has turned it over to the FBI, who is investigating.
What do you think the outcome should be?
I believe the couple should press charges.
UPDATE: An ABC News video shows the altercation on the plane. Timothy Manley denies punching the animal and its owner.
