Steven Slater was a flight attendant for Jet Blue and had been employed in the airline industry for 28 years.
On Monday as a Jet Blue passenger jet was taxiing to it's gate in New York- a passenger who did NOT remain seated until the plane parked at the gate hit Mr. Slater in the head with a piece of luggage.
Steven Slater reportedly lost it then.
According to the Associated Press story- Slater "cursed-out a passenger on an airplane public-address system, grabbed some beer from the galley and exited on an emergency slide" when the plane arrived and parked at the gate.
Slater then boarded an airline bus and went home- then police showed up to arrest him.
No report if police arrested the rule-breaking passenger- but lest you forget-- justice IS blind.
