A man was arrested after allegedly exposing himself to a flight attendant from Delta Air Lines and passengers
A native of Galway, Ireland, allegedly threw an empty drink can and hit another passenger in the head, according to the complaint. Legal documents also said that McInerney had an exchange with the captain, who was on break, and twice placed his own hood on the captain’s head. The statement said McInerney held his fist close to the captain’s face and said, “Do not touch me.”
At one point during the flight, McInerney allegedly pulled down his pants and underwear, and exposed his buttocks to a flight attendant, according to the complaint.
McInerney was also not seated when the plane was on its last flight to John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York, the complaint read.
McInerney’s lawyer, Benjamin Zev Yaster, had no comment.
McInerney was released on a $ 20,000 bond and remains in the United States as a condition of his bond, according to Marzulli.
No date has been set for McInerney’s trial, but he made his first appearance in Brooklyn Federal Court on January 14, Marzulli said.
