An American Airlines flight from Pittsburgh to Dallas had to be diverted because of a drunken, unruly passenger.
Brandon Ganus, 32, was taken into custody after the flight was diverted and landed in Oklahoma City at about 11.30pm on Sunday night.
‘I once saw a passenger give her husband a hand job on an evening flight,’ Flight attendants reveal most disturbing experiences on board
He had allegedly started yelling obscenities and threatening people on the flight.
Police bodycam footage showed multiple officers getting on the plane to arrest him
One passenger could be heard saying ‘go get him’ as the three officers boarded.
Passengers burst into applause when Ganus, who lives in Weatherford, Texas, was led away in handcuffs.
He had to be restrained mid-flight with plastic zip ties and duct tape by crews and passengers
A police report says Ganus was arrested on misdemeanor complaints of public intoxication, resisting arrest, assault and battery and disorderly conduct.
Ganus used a ‘variety of colorful obscenities’ to threaten the officers and their families following his arrest.

He was eventually taken from the airport in a wheelchair because he had dropped to his knees to resist arrest.
The flight departed less than an hour later for Dallas/Fort Worth.
‘We want to thank our crew, along with some of the customers, who assisted during this situation,’ a statement from American Airlines read.
