A 22-year-old Frontier Airlines passenger was duct taped to his seat after he allegedly groped the breasts of two flight attendants and assaulted another.
The man, who has been identified as Maxwell Berry, was arrested on July 31. He was on a flight from Philadelphia to Miami.
According to the Washington Post, he was arrested on three counts of battery, but federal felony charges were unlikely. In a viral video shared by ABC News' Sam Sweeney, Berry throws a tantrum on board.

"You guys f****** suck," he screams in the video.
"My parents are worth more than f****** two million goddamn dollars," he continues while passengers are heard laughing in the background.
A flight attendant tries to calm Berry down, but he continues his rant.
The man starts to attack someone but is restrained by one of the flight attendants.
Moments later, the flight attendant duct tapes him to the seat. The attendant even tapes his mouth.
Frontier Airlines said in a statement that the passenger needed to be restrained until the flight landed in Miami and law enforcement arrived after his attack on the flight attendants.
"Frontier Airlines maintains the utmost value, respect, concern and support for all of our flight attendants, including those who were assaulted on this flight.
"We are supporting the needs of these team members and are working with law enforcement to fully support the prosecution of the passenger involved. The inflight crew members’ current paid leave status is in line with an event of this nature pending an investigation," the statement read.
