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.
