Last week, the photo you see above of 46-year-old Gudmundur Karl Arthorsson, an “apparently intoxicated” passenger “acting in a disorderly fashion” on an Icelandair flight from Reykjavik, Iceland to New York City, went viral, because who doesn’t enjoy a jolly laugh at a picture of a drunk-on-duty-free-liquor, middle-aged man being restrained with duct tape while his belly sticks out of his shirt. That is not a question. No video evidence of the event existed, until…*drinks 59 bottles of schnapps*…now. According to Gothamist:

Arthorsson had reportedly downed an entire bottle of hard liquor, as well as a variety of mini bottles, before he became verbally and physically abusive. “He tried to grope and strangle fellow passengers and they said absolutely not,” said Manhattan resident Andy Ellwood, who originally posted the photo sent by his friend who was on the flight. Arthorsson tried to “choke the woman next to him” and was “screaming the plane was going to crash,” other passengers had said. (Via)
