Authorities reported FlightML2673 was bound for Paris from the Algerian capital of Algiers when flight attendants were forced to take the man to the floor of the plane when he became irate.

The man was escorted off the Airbus A321 at Lyon’s international airport by local police. Another man was arrested for his involvement in the brawl.
The flight was able to take off again once the passengers were removed, arriving at Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris three hours behind schedule.
