A drunk 52 year old – also described as ‘burly’ and ‘tattooed’ – was tasered by police after removing his clothes, including his underpants, and urinating at the side of an airport building.
Picture the scene, you’ve been on a lovely holiday to Malta. The weather was good, the beaches were quiet as the kids are back at school and you’ve topped up your tan. To delay the post holiday blues, you have a drink (or five) on the plane on the way back to Manchester…
As reported by the press association, a man became abusive mid-flight, swearing at fellow passengers. So disruptive was his behaviour that the captain left the cockpit to speak to the man. It then appears the plane landed and the passengers disembarked onto the tarmac. At this point, it was reported that the man stripped off and was slapped in the face by a female passenger. This appears to have prompted him to get re-dressed. At some point, the man urinated on the side of the airport building before making his way to the baggage collection area.
Before he could do so, police caught up with him and ‘dry tasered’ him – The Guardian state that this is where the gun is held against the target to cause shock and pain – when he refused to cooperate.
The man was then given a fixed penalty notice. It would appear that this was for being drunk in a public place, although this is just an assumption.
