A Southwest airlines flight bound from Los Angeles to San Francisco was forced to turn around when a male passenger allegedly choked a woman for reclining her seat. Also on the flight was Mark Curry, the former star of ABC’s hit ’90s show Hangin’ With Mr. Cooper, who recounted the frantic moments after the alleged incident.
Witnesses reportedly told investigators the man began choking the woman when she reclined her seat back. The woman shouted for help and flight crews immediately intervened. The man was reportedly very calm when confronted by flight crew and later police. Curry, who now hosts a radio show in San Francisco, said he was sleeping and suddenly woke to a scene of chaos on the plane.
