A PACK, NOT A HERD -- and more evidence of the value of duct tape!
A Texas man who disrupted a United Airlines flight from Hawaii was subdued with the help of passengers and duct tape, authorities said Sunday.
No one was reported injured, said Sgt. Carl Sansbury of the Los Angeles International Airport police. . . .
"They let him wander back and forth in the plane until he started to move forward," Gugerty said. "Then they surrounded him and pushed him to the floor."
About a half-dozen passengers were involved, he said.
Remember: if it can't be fixed with tape, it can't be fixed. . . .
UPDATE: You can read another interesting pack-not-a-herd story here, with an update here. This would make an interesting story for a major-media outfit, I think.
