It took several passengers to restrain him before the plane returned to Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, according to a federal complaint.
The plea came after Hudek filed an affidavit with the court stating that he bought and ingested “edible marijuana” in Seattle just before his flight.
The federal charges indicate that Hudek — whose mother worked for Delta — was flying first class on a “dependent pass” on July 6 and became violent when flight attendants tried to stop him from opening the door over the Pacific Ocean.
Hudek’s attorneys had submitted more than 300 letters of recommendation to the court, arguing that he has no history of violence or substance abuse.
A flight attendant grabbed two wine bottles
and hit Hudek with both, breaking
one over his head.
