A flight attendant was arrested yesterday after he queened out on a Jet Blue flight, cursed the passengers, popped the emergency chute, launched himself down the chute and fled the airport in his car.

Steven Slater, 39, was arrested at his Queens home and charged with criminal mischief, reckless endangerment and criminal trespass, according to the Queens District Attorney's Office.

Slater was upset over being accidentally hit in the head with a falling bag following a dispute with an airline passenger.

According to CNN:

The incident took place just after the Jet Blue flight landed [at JFK Airport] when a passenger stood to remove a bag from the overhead bin while the plane was still taxiing, a law enforcement source with direct knowledge said. A flight attendant exchanged words with the passenger, and the conversation escalated.

Slater picked up the intercom and used expletives directed at the passengers, according to a source with knowledge of the investigation. The source said that when the plane at stopped at the gate, Slater then grabbed some beer from the beverage cart before deploying the emergency slide and using it to leave the plane.

According to passengers, Slater got on the intercom and said, "I've been doing this for twenty years and I'm out of here."

The FAA is investigating the incident, although they claim none of the passengers were in danger.

The used emergency chute will cost the low budget airline $50,000 to replace.

  • Al-Ameera

    This has been playing on the news since last night, Hilarious!

    Everyone has a snapping point and I guess that was his. Plus, apparently he is going thru some thangs. He lives with his mom who is sick with terminal cancer and they said something else about him but I forgot what.

  • BLACKBARBIE404

    HEARD ABOUT THIS.... IT'S HILARIOUS! HE DIDN'T HURT ANYBODY, SO I AINT MAD AT HIM. HELL, EVEN MAILMEN GO POSTAL. IJS LOL

  • buddapecan

    Although this is initally funny (hilarious!) I would have been pissed if I had my children with me on this flight. The passenger was wrong cause he/she know they supposed to keep they arse in the seat until the "ok" is given but then gonna get mad when they're corrected. As far as the flight attendant goes, you can't cuss everybody else out because of one fool. Now he's the one looking crazy by running off with the beer. ROFL...still can't help but laugh at the visual. But nevertheless...as a mom...I would be mad! Ha!

  • http://twitter.com/eastpointvet eastpointvet

    with these pictures i can vividly imagine how he looked sliding down the chute lol

  • LaTechGrad02

    I'm sure the other flight attendants were probably :cheer: You can only push people so far then they snap. I know I've felt like that myself but wow, he went down in a blaze of glory.

  • buddapecan

    @East...and you know he was talking ish in the car when he was driving home! ROFL!!!!!!

  • lexdiamonz

    that passenger better thank his lucky charms he wasn't on Lufthansa or Saudi Air bish would have been DEALT with by them flight attendents they get crunk if you UN-buckle your seat belts !!!

  • BROWNSUGAPOET

    i can imagine him right before the plane takes off doin his speech showin the passengers the emergency exits and then doin a twirl at the end

  • http://youtube.com/hushvisionfilms BK2ATLMAN

    yeah i heard about this last night.. He grabbed that beer and was out.. how security allowed him to slide down and run across the tarmac and not stop him..

  • kearalove

    I read that he was pushed by the passenger and called names (I can only imagine what) before he flipped out. If this is the case, I wonder if the passenger is going to get charged, too? :shrug:

  • Al-Ameera

    Also, the lady not only hit him in the head with the bag but told hir to go F himself. He was just mad :rofl:

  • http://youtube.com/hushvisionfilms BK2ATLMAN

    He probably got mad cause he can't f himself... :cheers:

    Hello All. Anyone who's worked with the public probably can relate to his hysteria. Bravo to him. He'll surely get his 15 mins of fame extended. It was the lead story on the Today show, not the serial killer white man who's stabbed to death 5 blacks since May in Flint, MI, now he's in the DC area. So far, he's stabbed over 20 blacks and I believe one white, from ages 15 to 60. Not important news in America, just another ni@@er dead, so sad. (I'm feeling better folks!) Peaceeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.

    The Seriel Killer stabbed a man in my city Sunday, I'm in Ohio. He better hope the cops catch him before the general public does.

    I probably would have done the same thing.

  • free

    dude is my hero!

  • cheeks8683

    Heck at least he didn't go off and kill anybody which seems to be happening more often now when folks get upset at work(like last week in Conn). His actions only will effect him :coffee:

    Righ, it could have been worse. Somewhere somebody had to capture this on video. This man just quit a job of 20 yrs., it's all good, he will make more in one interview than he made all yr. I can see him hosting/narrating a E show about employees who go postal. He could face 7 yrs if charged on all counts, why didn't they charge him for stealing the beer? :lol:

  • quannie111

    :popcorn:I so agree he will get a reality show and talk show request, this is just too funny! stay tuned this is not over from him, he is on the map for sure! i know some of us including the other flight attendants wish they had the balls he has to do this! I like this dude, ahem, i mean queen already!:dance:

  • quannie111

    :dance: someone had to have been video taping this i cant wait to see this foolery!!

  • Issa

    LMMFAO. Why the hell isn't there a video of this? The one time people choose to follow instructions and not have their cell phones out, something good happens. LOL. You can't make this shit up. Sandra, why didn't you include the part where the cops said they showed up to arrest him and it appeared he was in the midst of sexual relations? :dead:

    But, seriously, I do feel bad sometimes for people who have jobs where they are interacting with the public on a daily basis. I don't know how they do it. My mom always told be to be careful about what you say to people because you never know what a person is going through and you may be the one to catch it all.

  • scandalous1

    he should have slammed her damn head in that same overhead compartment, then proceeded with cussing her stank a** out.

  • AllNYC

    @ Issa - that was the cherry on the sundae of the story. He took 2 brews - one for him and one for his man. Got home and it was on and poppin'!! The police interrupted! That's why he had that smile on face.

    1. Cussed out an entire plane full of people - Check!
    2. Slid down a slide - Check!
    3. Drank some beers - Check!
    4. Jumped my boyfriend's bones - Check!

    He had a good day!
