If you’re thinking of getting stoned on twice the prescribed amount of medical marijuana as a way to make a long flight less miserable, you might want to reconsider.  There might be a flight attendant whose black belt in Tae Kwon Do (or a similarly effective martial art) serving drinks.

Absurd?  It happened last week on US Airways flight 1447.

After causing a big disturbance, Kinman Chan was told to return to his seat by flight attendant Lorin Gorman, and in return he made a threatening motion towards her (that’s right, FEMALE), and so she put him in an arm lock, jumped on him and applied a chokehold.

Thanks to Scott Carmichael of Gadling.com for writing the article and finding the picture.  He had an interesting article on the story that dominates this article, including details on what the passenger was doing to get put into a choke hold.
