“You don’t put your hands on my flight attendant!” That’s what an American Airlines pilot told a passenger as he took him down in a wrestling move.

As seen in the video, passenger Michael Kerr threatened to break the pilot’s jaw and pushed the flight attendant to the floor. That’s when the pilot jumped in.

“We landed and were taxiing, and waiting for the jet bridge to arrive at the exit door and the man started screaming, ‘let’s go, go’,” Colón said. A flight attendant asked Kerr to sit down, but he refused and followed her into the forward galley.

According to News Observer, Kerr allegedly drank three Jack Daniel’s on the plane before he got combative with the flight crew. According to an FBI affidavit, he threatened, shoved, kicked and spat at flight attendants before he was subdued by a pilot and hauled off the plane by police officers.

Kerr, 25, faces charges of being intoxicated and disruptive, assault on a female, communicating threats and interfering with a flight crew or attendant, according to the Charlotte Observer.

Kerr was arraigned in federal court Monday and released on $20,000 bond.
