FBI: Flight attendant broke wine bottle over man’s head

A flight attendant broke a wine bottle over the head of a human who lunged for an exit doorway and fought with other passengers during a Delta Air Lines flight from Seattle to Beijing, but it didn’t faze him, an FBI agent wrote in charging newspapers filed Friday.

Joseph Daniel Hudek IV, 23, of Tampa, Florida, appeared in U.S. District Court, wearing a beige incarcerate uniform and sporting a rub or bruise below his right eye.

He was arrested Thursday evening after causing the disorder that forced the plane to return to Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, authorities said.

Hudek did not speak during the course of its hearing. His attorney, Robert Flennaugh II, declined to comment.

Hudek was charged with interfering with a flight crew, which carries a possible sentence of up to 20 years imprisonment and a $250,000 penalty. He is expected to remain in custody at the least until a detention hearing on July 13.
