Guy Punches Teenager For Not Turning Off iPhone on Plane

first_imgI’ve spent much of my past week on planes and in airports. I understand air rage, really, I do. I also understand getting upset when people talk on their phones at inopportune times. That said, I’ve never actually punched anyone over either of these things. As of this week, the same cannot be said about one Russell E. Miller of Boise, Idaho. The 68-year-old man was so enraged by a fellow Southwest Airlines passenger that he punched him. Apparently the offending teenage wouldn’t turn his iPhone off during the flight. Flight attendants instructed the plane to turn off electronic devices as the plane started its descent, but the 15-year-old went right on listening to music and playing games on the device, so Miller punched him in the arm. The 68-year-old was arrested on suspicion of misdemeanor battery.last_img read more
