Here’s your daily dose of “what on earth was he thinking?!?”
A few days ago there were some delays and cancellations at Frankfurt Airport due to weather, which can certainly be frustrating and bring out the worst in people. However, I have absolutely no clue what would posses someone to respond like this.
There’s video footage of a man punching three police offers after his flight was delayed, but only after pledging his allegiance to… the UK! Per The Daily Mail:
This footage shows the extraordinary moment a rampaging British passenger punched three German police officers to the floor after his flight was delayed.
In the shocking video, filmed near a Lufthansa check-in gate, the man reportedly shouted ‘I am a British citizen’ before launching the assault.
He started the brawl when his wife was apparently knocked to the ground by staff when the couple complained about flight delays.
A police spokesman said: ‘The attacker was an Englishman who was worried about his wife. She had circulatory problems’.
Here’s the video footage:
I’ve seen a lot of videos of airport assaults, though this has to be the worst I’ve seen yet.
Not that assault is ever okay, but seriously, assaulting armed police officers… really?!
Well, good thing this didn’t happen in the US, at least, because it could have ended very differently.
