A U.S. court gave out a sentence of 3 years of prison time to a Korean dentist who caused a commotion on an airplane while being intoxicated. 


On November 30, American media outlets reported that Chief Judge Frances Tydingco-Gatewood sentenced Kwon Woo Sung, a 46-year-old-dentist from Korea, to prison time for causing a disturbance on a Korean Air flight that was flying from Busan, Korea to Guam in April 2016.

According to the reports, the dentist drank five beers during the flight, hid and smoked a cigarette in the restroom, then caused a commotion when a flight attendant discovered the smoking. Kwon then started to curse at the flight attendant and demanded that he gets 2 more beers. 


Flight attendants and passengers tried to calm Kwon down, but he continued to create a problem, which did not stop until he was stunned with a taser. Here is a photo of Kwon right after he was arrested: 





Kwon was also fined $10,500 which was taken out of his $100,000 cash bail. A South Korean attorney also revealed that Kwon may be charged back in Korea when he returns.

    Why did you omit the most important part of the story?  He beat up a flight attendant and assaulted 5 other people.

    They do not play when it comes to causing a problem on an airplane. I was on a flight back before 9/11 when some nutty woman pushed one the stewardesses. When the plane landed the cops got on first and took her off. Now after 9/11 they will taze your ass in a minute bind you and hand you over as soon as the plane lands. If he got rowdy enough to be tazed then he did something to deserve what he got.

    i agree with you that rapists & murderers don't get much time but disorderly conduct on a plane is serious offense (at least in US law) since it's perceived as essentially endangering the lives of everyone on board.

    In the US they do. Murders, capital murder will get you the death penalty.

    I also want to add that in the US you cannot walk around "drunk in public" like in Korea. They will lock you up for the night until you sober up.

    It all depends on the evidence you present in court. In rape cases it's usually your words against the other (and some scientific evidence if you're lucky) and once his/her lawyers make the jury doubt your words that's it.

    The swimmer douchebag who got 6 months. Witnesses actually CAUGHT him raping the unconscious woman, yet he only got 6 months because the judge didn't want to fuck up his future.

    A lot of people start drinking in the terminal before they get on the plane. I think a lot of people are scared to fly and need to get drunk to handle being in the air.
