Female passenger turned down by plane: British man too angry to eat mobile phone

There’s a thousand worlds, nothing strange. Matthew Flaherty, a British man, appeared in court on Monday on three counts and paid the price for his frenzied actions on a plane last year,media reported. In January last year, the man flew a three-hour easyJet flight from Manchester to Iceland, the report said. Flying halfway, he got manic. The initial cause is said to have been the rejection of the female passenger, who then threatened to “kill the woman’s whole family”.

The plane, carrying 142 people, was urgently diverted to Edinburgh Airport after consultation with the crew. In the descent stage, the man put his phone in half and even ate up the screen. Witnesses said the damaged batteries even smoked from their seats.

After the door was opened, law enforcement officers who had been waiting for a long time detained the “madman” and, when the confession was recorded, the man again became furious, calling the police “racists”.

In court, Flaherty’s lawyer argued that his client’s combination of alcohol and painkillers caused excessive behavior.
