According to the witness, Peter Uzelac, who spoke to FOX40, the Wednesday flight was on the way to Austin, Texas, with a stopover at LAX. However, while on the tarmac, a maintenance and the aircraft was forced to return to the gate to check it out.

While the plane was busy with the maintenance issue, the flight was delayed again due to a need to refuel.

At this point, Uzelac said the facilitator started with the distribution of water for the passengers because the flight was delayed for a few hours – and a man sitting near him made a joke.

“He said something [like]” They need the pass of vodka because we had already waiting so long,'” Uzelac told FOX40.

“[The flight attendant came by and was like, ‘I don’t think I don’t like your joke,” he continued. “When my wife tried to butt-in and say: ‘Look, we’ve been on this plane for an hour.’ And [supervisor] says, ‘Well, so have I, so get used to it.'”

Uzelac said the other passengers were shocked by the woman and her behaviour, but decreased.

“Then all of a sudden, I see her on the phone at the front,” he said.

Uzelac told FOX40 the plane back to the gate again, and different Sacramento County sheriff’s deputies boarded the flight and removed the man from the plane.

“And the people began to shout. In fact, people were. I was standing on. People said: this man did nothing,” Uzelac said.

Police allegedly not the man with a crime, but Uzelac has filed a complaint against the flight attendant with Southwest, the outlet reported.
