A man from California claiming to be a millionaire was thrown off a JetBlue flight following a rowdy episode where he was captured on a cellphone camera bragging his riches and yelling obscenities at crew members while intoxicated.
The disgraced passenger was identified in a Daily Mail article as David Brackett, the vice president of Homeland Financial Network; a California-based real estate and mortgage company.
Bracket was caught on video by another passenger, Sarah Walter Bear; disobeying the crew of the Sacramento-bound JetBlue flight from Long Beach and shouting at other people including two men with whom he had a heated argument.
At one point, after introducing himself as a millionaire, Bracket was heard telling another passenger: “Eat s**t and d*e, I wasn’t f*****g talking to you!”
“Nerd? Look to yourself, sir. Mister bald-can’t-grow-a-set-of-hair. I’m 28 and I make $4 million a year, what do you do?” Bracket arrogantly quipped at a man in white shirt.
But the man in white shirt retorted back; apparently annoyed at Bracket’s drunkenness and brazen attitude.
“Hey guys. Can I whoop this guy in the back real quick?” the man said. But Bracket went on by bragging he owns six houses and have an IQ of 176 plus a 20/20 vision.
He also threatened to sue the woman who was recording the incident.
At least one female passenger tried to stand up to the three rude men and admonished them for their shameless behavior.
Crew members were apparently helpless in trying to stop the men’s rowdiness and had to call the airport security for assistance.
Bracket, the man in white shirt, and a third man wearing a cap were all ejected from the plane before take-off.
In a statement to the Daily Mail, JetBlue airline management confirmed the incident, saying:
“On April 8, Flight 266 from Long Beach to Sacramento returned to the gate shortly before departure following a report of disruptive customers in the cabin. The aircraft was met by local authorities where the customers were removed before the flight continued on to Sacramento.”
