Two passengers were reportedly arguing in the middle of the flight when one of them reportedly swung at the other with a broken wine bottle top before the flight attendants intervened and diffused the situation.

The suspect allegedly broke the wine bottle in the galley and threatened the man with the top. Another passenger who attempted to step in and stop the incident got hurt as well, suffering a severe cut that required treatment from a nurse. Upon landing in St. Lucia, the passengers were brought to the hospital, and the suspect was taken into custody.
