He has some good company on the not a lot of smarts list. Two teens in Illinois were arrested for the same thing after going into a WalMart and spraying more than $7000 worth of produce with Lysol of some sort. You cannot fix stupid.

Bozo will maybe have a surprise when he tries to go to LA to find fame and fortune. US Customs and Border Patrol will probably refuse him entry after he gets a conviction on his profile, especially for one involving an international flight. This guy needs 30 days obs in Penetang.

If you think the airlines have problems enough if I were captaining and had enough of clowns I'd have a light parachute in my bag and chuck his tail out. For the safety of the flight of course.

All incurred costs, both by the airline and passengers should be charged to this guy, by order of a court or courts. His earnings need be garnisheed until all of the debt, including accrued interest, has been paid. Unfortunately, he would just go on welfare and not work for the rest of his life.

I hope the airline takes him to court to recoup the money for that flight and the other 2 canceled ones over his now 15 minutes of fame. What a maroon! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_NYFq7ZJg4c

I'd say you can say that again but I'd lose American and Canadian social credits.

He's not a kid, but an idiot destined to Los Angeles where stupid actions have no consequences. Hope the fines bankrupt the moron and jail time where he could get reamed would be good too.
