Booze makes people do stupid things. Booze on an airplane makes people do stupider things, only at a higher altitude. Take this guy for instance, who got all liquored up on a flight from Istanbul to the southern Russian city of Krasnodar this past Thursday, and (allegedly) attacked his wife. This didn’t sit well with members of FC Chernomorets Novorossiysk, a former second division Russian soccer club who have since been moved up to the first division, which led to a nasty confrontation between the drunk passenger and several players. It doesn’t take much for the situation to escalate, because it’s quite obvious the unruly passenger is totally smashed at this point (the fact that he fell with barely a push on the arm was a dead giveaway). Words are exchanged, followed by some pushing and shoving, before it devolves into an all out war between one wasted dude and a group of angry Russian soccer players. Try and guess who won. More details from RIA Novosti… While flying from Istanbul to the southern Russian city of Krasnodar on Thursday, the 27-year-old man “began to argue with his spouse and, in the course of the conflict, hit her,” a spokesman for the regional transport police department for southern Russia told RIA Novosti on Monday. “The violent man was pacified by other passengers and on the ground he was handed over to police officers.” In the end the man was charged with hooliganism and fined 1000 rubles, or roughly $32, which seems a bit on the low side considering he (allegedly) smacked his wife in view of the general public (and what looks to be his young child). Kudos to the members of FC Chernomorets Novorossiysk for stepping in and handling the situation effectively. If you take away one thing from this story, it’s that the next time you’re pounding back a few drinks on an airplane, remember, if Russians can’t handle their booze at 40,000 feet, what makes you think you can?
