A RYANAIR FLIGHT from Latvia to Dublin had to be diverted to Denmark after a drunk man took his top off and began flexing his muscles.

The flight from Riga to Dublin had to land at Aarhus airstrip in Denmark, where police arrested the man.

The Copenhagen Post reports he was “subdued” and arrested.

It quotes a local police officer as saying the drunk man was “uneasy on board the aircraft”, but was not violent.

“This flight from Riga to Dublin diverted into Aarhus after a passenger became disruptive in-flight. On arrival, police removed (and detained) this passenger before the aircraft departed to Dublin. We are fully assisting the police with their investigations and the individual has been banned from travelling on our airline.

“We will not tolerate unruly or disruptive behaviour at any time and we sincerely apologised to other customers for any inconvenience caused. The safety and comfort of our customers, crew and aircraft is our number one priority.”
