“Hudek did not seem impacted by the breaking of a full liter red wine bottle over his head"

By now, other passengers were scared. Hudek had raised the lever halfway up, according to the affidavit. Flight crew members would later tell the FBI agent that had the plane been flying at a lower altitude, the door could have opened.

A flight attendant picked up a wine bottle, then a second one, and smashed them each over Hudek’s head, according to the FBI.

“Hudek did not seem impacted by the breaking of a full liter red wine bottle over his head,” the FBI agent wrote, “and instead shouted ‘Do you know who I am?’ or something to that extent.”
