American AirlinesAmerican Airlines flight 2763 from Phoenix to Boston was forced to make an unscheduled landing at Kansas airport to remove unruly passenger on Monday evening because guy refused to stop doing pulls ups on an overhead cabinet.


According to a leading news media platform, the unnamed fitness freak boarded the plane with his two dogs and appeared to be intoxicated.


This man was putting out his bags to the overhead compartment and begin leaning on to it, with another passenger teasingly asked him if he was going to do the pull-ups, that’s when things took a wrong turn.


When flight attendant requested him multiple times to sit down, he refused, eventually becoming “verbally abusive,” according to passenger David Markoski. That’s when the pilot decided to make a landing in Kansas City, where law enforcement got into the plane and escort the guy.


After clearing the chaotic passenger, the plane reached to its final destination at Logan Airport around 1:00 a.m. With the latest reports, no charges have been filed against him. According to a leading media website based in the United States the flight reached Boston about 90 minutes late.


We all understand how frustrating it’s to sit idle for hours during long flights, but let’s be realistic that planes are not the place where you do unusual things like pull-ups even someone instigates you to do it.
