Posted: Updated:

PREVIOUSLY, 1/6/12: A drunk Minnesota man was dragged off a flight for allegedly attacking a flight attendant, reports KARE 11.

Allen Chaves was aboard a Delta flight from Minnesota to Los Angeles when he had an altercation with a flight attendant.

"There was a little bit of a scuffle," passenger Ed Barrera told KARE 11. "When the flight attendant walked back up, he was bleeding from the nose."

Afterward, Chaves was restrained by other passengers for the remainder of the flight.

According to LAist.com, "at the request of the airline the subject was removed from the aircraft because he was too intoxicated to stand."

He is being held on a misdemeanor account of assault.

Another drunk airline passenger, who reportedly assaulted a JetBlue flight attendant in November, is being sued for damages for physical and emotional injuries.

UPDATE, 2/8/12: Video has emerged of Chaves being dragged hands first off the flight as he was too intoxicated to stand up, according to the Los Angeles Daily News. He was then taken to a local hospital to sober up.
