*A male passenger on Frontier Airlines Flight 864 from Denver to Charleston, SC, was led away in handcuffs shortly after his flight landed. Witnesses say Michael A. Haag, a 45-year-old white man was drinking on flight and first grabbed a woman seated next to him.
Emily, a passenger on the flight, described Haag as “extremely intoxicated” and “out of his mind.” She said he apparently groped a woman next to him, and said, “I hear a woman scream, if this man f–king touches me one more time I’ll f–king kill him,” according to Fox 31 Denver.
The woman alleged that she saw the man drink two double shots of vodka on the flight. Haag also verbally assaulted another woman by asking her personal questions about her sexual habits.
When flight attendants learned about his behavior they moved him to the rear of the plane, and then asked Emily, who was sitting in the row across from him, to move if he tried to touch her.
Well, he didn’t touch her, instead he decided to urinate.
“And I scream, ‘He’s f—ing peeing. He’s peeing. Oh my God.’ And the flight attendant doesn’t even acknowledge him at first. [The attendant] acknowledges me and says you need to calm down and stop cursing,” she told Fox 31.
Haag was later photographed being taken away from his gate in handcuffs. He was released a short while later on $25,000 bond.
Emily wasn’t happy about the way Frontier handled the situation. She felt the airline should have monitored him as soon as they learned of the man’s behavior.
The airline waived her baggage fees, gave her a $200 voucher and issued a statement.
