From, Canada.com, your online source for hard-hitting Canadian news:
"Defence" is spelled wrong in Canada.
David Cornacchia, 27, who at the time of the incident was a defenceman with the Florida Everblades of the minor professional ECHL, was charged with interfering with a flight crew after a Dec. 27, 2007, incident aboard a flight from Toronto to Dallas. He pleaded guilty in May.
According to an affidavit, Cornacchia slapped a flight attendant, intimidated and swore at other crew members, and exposed himself to nearby passengers after he was refused alcoholic service when he appeared intoxicated. Cornacchia also head-butted a passenger who was helping flight attendants restrain the journeyman defenceman.
Defence lawyer Michael Hornung said his client had uncharacteristically mixed alcohol with a strong prescription sedative called Ambien.
Remarkably, we find the fact that he was sentenced for "air rage" more amusing than the fact he exposed himself to a nearby passenger. But still, quality stuff.
On a loosely-related note, we liked the movies Con Air and Passenger 57.
