KLM Brit brawl; Rowdy passengers arrested off Amsterdam flight

by Alister POOLE on December 17, 2012

Three British men will appear in court this week after an alcohol-fueled brawl on a flight that terminated in  Amsterdam resulted in 17 arrests.

The men – aboard a KLM flight from Glasgow – were charged with a string of offences, such as groping female cabin stewards and threatening crew, according to a report. The group was heading to the popular city of Amsterdam to attend a Swedish House Mafia concert and it has been alleged that they had been spotted drinking Jagerbomb cocktails before boarding their flight at Glasgow Airport.

The other members of the party, known as the “Bundy Boys”, were arrested but released after paying a fine of £600 each. Representing the Royal Netherlands Military Police, Martijn Peelen confirmed that three men have had to be detained until Tuesday as they were charged with offences more serious than their colleagues, such as threatening cabin crew members and touching female cabin crew in a sexual manner.

Mr Peelen went on to detail how the other 14 members of the gang were freed after being hit with fines of 750 euros each. While some paid the fine, others that haven’t yet will be summoned to court if they fail to meet the set deadline.
