A group of passengers duct-taped a man to his seat after he attacked a United Airlines flight attendant during a trip from Hong Kong to Los Angeles, authorities said.

The Orange County man, apparently drunk, was wrestled to his seat by passengers after he attacked an attendant on United Airlines Flight 862. He was arrested when the plane landed in Los Angeles around 10 a.m. Wednesday.

His name was not immediately released and it was not immediately clear what triggered the attack, authorities said.
