Brit, 29, arrested after 'biting off another passenger's ear in drunken brawl over drink' onboard UK flight to Spain

A BRIT has been arrested for allegedly biting off a fellow passenger's ear in a drunken plane brawl.

The 29-year-old was held after officers called to deal with an altercation on board witnessed the sickening attack.

The horror unfolded as the plane touched down at Majorca’s Palma Airport from Birmingham.

Police said they arrested the holidaymaker after he downed another passenger’s drink while the plane was still in the air before the attack.

The Brit had also tried opening a fridge containing booze after being refused alcohol by staff.

The Civil Guard said in a statement: “A 29-year-old has been arrested on suspicion of wounding following an incident on board a plane that had just touched down at Palma Airport.

"As officers were taking down details of what had occurred by the entrance to the plane, they saw a fight had broken out inside.

“They entered the aircraft and saw the detainee attacking another passenger after biting off part of his right ear.

“He was overpowered and arrested.

“The victim, a compatriot of the man arrested, had to be taken to a hospital in Palma where he was admitted because of the injuries he had suffered after being assisted initially by police at the airport.”

Neither of the two men involved in the incident have yet been named.

A well-placed source described the two men involved as British, although Civil Guard officers could not be reached on Sunday night to confirm their nationalities.
