After downing whisky, an EasyJet thug “grabbed the stewardess by the throat” while flying.


A thug who drank a lot of Famous Grouse whisky before grabbing a member of the cabin crew by the neck while flying to Malta for his birthday has been sentenced to prison.

Colin Smith, 51, of Hull was traveling to the lovely island from Manchester Airport when he lost it when EasyJet employee Carley Griffith told him he couldn’t use the restroom just before the plane touched down.

Smith, who claimed that “nine out of ten drunk people” stare at people “vacantly,” lunged at Griffith and grabbed her by the neck with both hands before Griffith pushed him off onto a seated passenger.

Wild Smith was eventually restrained by two other passengers, who intervened and secured his six-month prison sentence.

Smith acknowledged being intoxicated while flying and assaulting a person in March of last year.

On their way off the plane, the crane operator’s long-term partner, Hayley Whitehand, who was also celebrating her 50th birthday, said, “I told him he shouldn’t drink whisky.”

Smith had purchased two bottles of Famous Grouse whisky in the duty-free section and had consumed 3/4 of one.
