British Airways Diverts to Orlando with Drunken Englishman

BA2202 flight passenger Sean Jude Kelly was drunk aboard his flight from Cancun Mexico. Normally, he is a moneybroker from Kent. But after a week in Cancun drinking, he became a hooligan.

On the flight home, he started threatening (278) passengers.

Three hours after taking off from Cancun, the British Airways captain detoured to Orlando Florida, where Kelly was arrested (before or after?) attacking a female Orlando police officer. Kelly is now being held in jail.

Flight attendants said Kelly spat at them, and fought other passengers. He drank half a 750ml bottle of Stolichnaya Vodka aboard the plane, and prior to boarding had taken anti-anxiety meds.

Speaking from my fantastic hotel in Cancun…
There’s plenty of rest and relaxation to be had in Cancun without spending the week in a bottle…
