An Australian man has been charged with attacking a fellow passenger and threatening a flight attendant on a Qantas flight this week from Tokyo to Sydney.
Australian Federal Police said in a statement Friday that Sydney man Tamas Halasz had to be restrained by the flight crew after assaulting a number of people on the Thursday flight.
Once the plane landed, police boarded the flight and took him into custody.
He was charged with endangering the safety of an aircraft in flight, assaulting the crew, threatening to injure persons and committing an act of violence on board an aircraft.
Each offense carries a maximum penalty of 14 years imprisonment.
Halasz was granted bail on Friday and will return to court next month.
