A man was tasered and arrested onboard a Jetstar flight after he allegedly refused to move to his assigned seat because he wanted to sit next to his mate. 

Melbourne man Bolic Bet Malou, 30, was charged for disorderly conduct, assaulting a police officer and obstructing a public officer after he allegedly became abusive onboard Jetstar flight JQ977 from Perth to Melbourne on Saturday.

It’s understood Malou had sat next to another passenger he was travelling with, and police allege he became abusive when asked to take his assigned seat before take-off.

Australian Federal Police officers were called in as the situation escalated and removed him from the flight.

Police allege Malou assaulted an officer and had to be restrained during the arrest. 

‘Police were required to deploy a taser in order to restrain and arrest the man,’ AFP said in a statement.

‘Three AFP officers sustained minor injuries that were later treated.’

Acting Superintendent Shona Davis said officers won’t accept illegal behaviour in airports.

‘Simply put, we just need to treat each other the way we want to be treated – with respect and common decency,’ she said.

‘Choosing to behave poorly on a flight not only effects your travel plans, but also those of potentially hundreds of other people.

‘This is why the AFP has no tolerance for poor behaviour in our airports or on aircraft.’

Malou has been handed a no-fly order until the matter is resolved. 

The second passenger travelling with him was also escorted off the plane but was not arrested.

Jetstar thanked the other passengers onboard for their patience during the arrest.

‘The safety of our customers and crew is our number one priority and while the vast majority of our customers behave well, we have zero tolerance for those who don’t,’ a spokesperson said.

‘Our crew called the AFP for assistance when a customer (allegedly) became verbally and physically abusive after he repeatedly refused to follow their instructions to move to his assigned seat.

‘After checking on the welfare of the remaining customers and crew onboard, the flight departed Perth approximately one hour after its scheduled departure time.

‘We thank passengers for their patience as our crew worked with the AFP to manage the situation.’

Malou appeared in court yesterday. He faces a maximum sentence of seven years if found guilty on all three charges.
