Drunk airline passenger duct-taped to seat

January 5, 2013 12:00:00 AM PST
A picture of an airline passenger who apparently had too much to drink is going viral.

The photo of the subdued man shows he had to be taped to his seat on a trans-Atlantic flight from Iceland to New York.

Witnesses say the man went on a drunken rampage, groping, choking and spitting on other passengers, so they taped him up with duct tape.

The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey confirmed the incident.
