Lexington man downs three Jack Daniel’s, gets violent on flight to Charlotte

The flight from Lexington, KY to Charlotte, NC is barely an hour long, but it was long enough for Michael Kerr to down three Jack Daniel’s and get in a fight with flight attendants. According to the Charlotte Observer, the 25-year-old Kerr had three drinks after takeoff and, as the plane taxied to its gate at Charlotte Douglas International, ignored the flight crew’s orders and got out of his seat, and when told to sit down, threatened to break a flight attendant’s jaw.

From the Charlotte Observer:

Kerr, appearing intoxicated, walked quickly to the front of the plane and cursed at the flight crew. He kicked one attendant in the leg and shoved another to the floor of the plane, the affidavit says. The pilot and co-pilot, listed only by their initials in the document, got Kerr on the ground and used a seat belt strap to restrain his legs and keep him from kicking.

When Charlotte-Mecklenburg police arrived, Kerr was handcuffed but kept kicking, requiring other police officers to be called to the scene before he could be removed from the plane.

Kerr faces charges of intoxication, disruptive behavior, assault, threatening behavior, and interfering with the duties of a flight crew or attendant. Also, being a Kentuckian and drinking Tennessee whiskey instead of bourbon.

    The first thing I noticed was the fact he downed 3 Jack Daniels. I just don’t understand how anyone can drink that swill.

      Use to travel extensively until a few years ago. USAir, only had Jack as a bourbon substitute. Delta had Woodford! That being said, I had “Chairman” status with USAir and would get upgraded to first class 9 of 10 times so I resigned myself to drinking a LOT of Jack on return flights versus sitting in Coach on Delta and having to pay for 1-2 Woodford Reserves. So there is at least one situation where in my opinion Jack was preferred to bourbon…but barely.

    Sometimes the airplanes don’t have any real bourbon, and the whiskey choice is Jack or Canadian. That ain’t right.

    Whoever served this jerkoff 3 JD’s on a 1 hr. flight probably deserves to be punched in the jaw. I think his intoxication was likely a pre-existing condition before he got on the plane.

    Drinking the whisky that shall not be named should be a 3rd degree felony! Look at all the problems it causes!

    Looking at the guy I’m just shocked that it wasn’t Crown Royal.

      I worked with him for a short time (he was fired for being falling down drunk on the job) at a sports bar inside Rupp. You can probably figure out which one. He’s a HUGE Trump supporter.
