(Newser) – One more use for duct tape: The crew of an Icelandair flight used it to bind a drunk and raging passenger to his seat, reports the New York Post. The 46-year-old reportedly started assaulting passengers and screaming that the plane was going to crash about two hours from JFK. An off-duty captain on board helped two male passengers pin him down while the flight crew taped him to the seat and applied Flex cuffs. There he sat—quietly, because they taped his mouth, too—until police escorted him off upon landing. Click the Post link to see a passenger's posted photo of the bound man.

A parachute and a boot in the ass would have worked just as well.
