On Sunday evening, a Ryanair flight en route from Dublin to Bodrum had to make an unscheduled stopover in Memmingen. According to the police, the reason for this is that a drunk man is said to have rioted on board.
The "unruly PAX" is said to have tried to open an emergency exit door. It is said to be a 48-year-old Irish man. In addition to the riot, he is also said to have threatened the cabin crew of the low-cost airline. According to official information, the man should not have been alarmed, so that the captain decided to land in Memmingen unscheduled in order to hand over the troublemaker to the German executive.
Immediately after arriving at a parking position, the federal police entered the Ryanair jet. The executive explains that he should have at least put up passive resistance. After his arrest, prosecutors ordered the 48-year-old Irishman to be taken to a hospital to have his health assessed.
The Ryanair plane is said to have been full. The unscheduled stopover in Memmingen caused a considerable delay for the other passengers. This also affected those booked on the return flight from Bodrum to Dublin. The Federal Police are now conducting investigations in accordance with Section 315 of the Criminal Code (dangerous interference with aviation security) on the orders of the public prosecutor's office.
