    A passenger punched out the interior pane of an airplane window on an American West flight from Las Vegas to Florida, authorities said.

    Ryan J. Marchione, 24, shattered the inner plastic shield covering the glass window and disconnected its frame about 90 minutes into the flight, according to an FBI affidavit. The outer window was not damaged and the plane did not depressurize, the airline said.

    Marchione was arrested when the plane landed Wednesday at Tampa International Airport. He faces up to 20 years in federal prison if convicted of a charge of damaging or destroying an aircraft while it was operating.

    About 90 minutes after the plane departed, Marchione "woke abruptly from his sleep and turned to the passenger seated in 7B ... raised a clenched fist to his shoulder as if he was going to strike the passenger in 7B, then suddenly turned and struck the exterior window," the affidavit said.

    "It appears to have come out of nowhere," said Marchione's attorney, Thomas Ostrander. "Perhaps it was some sort of a psychotic episode as a result of drug abuse."

    Marchione was released on $25,000 bail to home detention with electronic monitoring.

    Maybe he was mad that they made him turn his Meet the F*ckers t-shirt inside out before the flight...

    Maybe he woke up from a nightmare that sHrillary won the 2008 election, and he just couldn't take it.

    I can just hear the cops: "OK, this guy takes out an airplane window with one punch. Who's the unlucky bastard that gets to arrest HIM"??!!

    LOL - agreed, unless the bastard's on angel dust. I saw a photo, in a police training manual, of a guy on a slab with THIRTY-THREE 9mm holes in him!

    I almost wish he had hit the outer window too, sucking his dumb ass out the hole, thus sealing the pressure vessel, and in the -35 degree temp freezing his nuts and rendering him unable to ever procreate.

    Damn I’m mean. :whip:

    Psychotic episode or no, anyone who pulls a stunt like this should be hit with a sleep dart by the air marshal, pronto. Do they have those for humans? Even big, drugged-up ones? I wonder why that's not an option for law enforcement, especially when you have three regular-sized cops trying to down a PCP-crazed, 6'6'' monster.
