Matthew Flaherty, 44, was jailed for 22 months after pleading guilty to drunk and threatening behaviour on an easyJet flight from Manchester to Keflavik in January last year. Flaherty was abusive to passengers and crew, which resulted in the flight being diverted to Edinburgh. Before landing, Flaherty pulled apart his phone and chewed on it, which caused the phone battery to smoke. A flight attendant intervened and placed the phone in a glass of water to prevent a fire. Whilst at the police station, he also racially abused a police officer.
