Passengers onboard a flight from Iceland to New York City were forced to a tape a fellow passenger to his seat after he became drunk and belligerent.

The New York Post reports the unnamed man drank heavily on the flight and then tried to "choke the woman next to him." Passengers also said the man was screaming that the plane was going to crash.

Witnesses said the trouble began with two hours left in the intercontinental flight.

Officials arrested the man when the flight eventually landed at Kennedy Airport in New York City.
