A flight bound to Japan from Hawaii was turned back because a man would not sit on his seat. Why wouldn’t he sit on his seat? Because he wanted to do yoga.
Hyongtae Pae wanted to do yoga in the back of the plane while food was being served but he wasn’t allowed to do so. His reaction was to yell at crew members and shove his wife.
Pae tried to head-butt and bite Marine passengers who restrained him. Defense attorney J.T. Kim said Wednesday that Pae was sleep-deprived and anxious. He had traveled to Hawaii from South Korea to celebrate his 40th wedding anniversary.
