Video captures a man involved in a fight aboard a Delta Air Lines flight.
An Irish man on a Delta Air Lines flight from Dublin to New York is accused of refusing to wear a face mask, throwing an empty can that hit another passenger and pulling down his pants and exposing his buttocks to a flight attendant and others nearby.
A criminal complaint filed in the Eastern District of New York and first obtained by The Daily Beast said 29-year-old Shane McInerney, a resident of Galway, "created … numerous disturbances" on the Jan. 7 flight traveling to John F. Kennedy International Airport.

"During the approximately eight-hour flight, the defendant repeatedly refused to wear a face mask despite being asked dozens of times by flight crew personnel," the FBI affidavit said.
The complaint states that McInerney kicked the back of the passenger seat in front of him, walked into the Delta One-class section and complained about his food to a flight attendant, disobeyed the orders of flight attendants as the plane was making its final descent and put his cap on the captain's head, said not to touch him and put his fist near the captain's face.
