What, No Video?
I know I've ventured off that slippery slope of posting videos. How much is too much? Like Professor Owl once wisely said, "the world may never know". But trust me if there was ever a video I'd post in a heartbeat, it's the one of Jet Blue flight attendant Steven Slater having the mother of all meltdowns.
It seems our Steven got into an arguement with a passenger over unloading baggage from the overhead bin before the reached the gate. In the process he was "accidentally" struck in the head with the luggage and demanded an apology from the passenger. After the passenger refused to apologize and cursed him, Slater marched away, grabbed the PA and gave the old "F me? No, F you pal! Buh-Bye!" retort. He then grabbed a couple frosty cold beers from the beverage cart and pulled the emergency exit.
Unconfirmed reports say he did a flawless Triple Lindy down the inflatable slide followed by a quadruple toe loop and stuck the landing on the passing AirTrain. He then stripped off his company issued tie and threw it in the air reminiscent of Mary Tyler Moore.
He was later arrested in his Queens home charged with criminal trespass, criminal mischief and reckless endangerment.
