(Scroll down for video) A member of parliament admitted to beating a flight attendant with a shoe because he was not given a business class seat on a plane, according to police in India.

Air India said that the company has filed a complaint with the police against MP Ravindra Gaikwad, after being accused of using his shoe to hit the flight attendant 25 times.

The 60-year-old flight attendant said that his glasses broke as a result of the attack. The incident unfolded after the member of the Shiv Sena boarded the plane.

Gaikwad asked the Air India flight attendant to show him to his business class seat. When the flight attendant made him aware that the plane was an all economy flight, Gaikwad became angry.

He took off his shoe and repeatedly beat the flight attendant.

When Gaikwad was later asked about the incident, he admitted to the assault because the flight attendant was arrogant. So far, no arrests have been made.

Air India said that they are thinking about putting the member of parliament on a no fly list due to his violent outbreak.

The speaker of the parliament however, warned that the government will prohibit airlines from having a no fly list in order for the member of parliament to be able to fly.

(Scroll down for video) Several bakers ended up behind bars for defying new rules that force bakeries to use nearly all of their flour for bread, according to police in Venezuela.

Caracas police said that they have arrested the bakers and took control of one bakery after uncovering that flour has been used to bake cake and cookies instead of bread.

President Nicolas Maduro introduced a law that requires bakeries to use 90% of their flour supply for bread in order to reduce shortages.

Another rule requires bakeries to have a constant supply of bread from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.

Those who are caught violating the rules face arrest and the bakery could be taken over by the government for up to 90 days.

Leaders of the ruling Socialist Party have blamed corporations for the shortages, saying that they are hoarding flour to increase prices.

A group representing bakeries slammed the government rules, saying that 80% of bakeries do not have any flour left.

700 government inspectors visited bakeries throughout the country to make sure that the bakers are complying with the new rules.

Two bakers were arrested after they used too much flour for sweet bread and ham croissants.

Two other bakers were arrested for using too much flour to bake brownies.

At least one bakery has been taken over by the government for 90 days for not keeping a constant supply of bread throughout the day.

(Scroll down for video) People are angry after learning that United Airlines banned girls from boarding a flight for wearing yoga pants.

The incident unfolded on Sunday, on a flight from Denver, Colorado, to Minneapolis, Minnesota.

The founder of Moms Demand Action, Shannon Watts, witnessed the incident and wrote about it on Twitter.

As the two girls and their companion were about to board the plane, an employee told them that they would have to change their outfits.

The employee explained to the three customers that girls cannot board flights wearing leggings. The two girls decided not to change their clothes, and were barred from the flight.

Watts criticized the airline’s policy as being discriminatory against women as leggings and yoga pants are extremely popular these days.

However, a spokesperson for United said that the airline has a right to block those with inappropriate clothing from flights.

“A @united gate agent isn’t letting girls in leggings get on flight from Denver to Minneapolis because spandex is not allowed?” Watts wrote on Twitter.

“She’s forcing them to change or put dresses on over their leggings or they can’t board. Since when does @united police women’s clothing?” She also wrote.

United responded to Watts: “We have the right to refuse transport for passengers who are barefoot or not properly clothed.”

Watts added: “A 10-year-old girl in gray leggings. She looked normal and appropriate. Apparently @united is policing the clothing of women and girls.”

An illegal immigrant tried to harm a woman who helped him for three days, following his unlawful entry into the United States, according to police in Texas.

U.S. Border Patrol agents and Dimmit County Sheriff’s deputies apprehended the man suspected of kidnapping the woman who gave the suspect food and water for three days.

On Wednesday, Carrizo Springs Station Border Patrol agents responded to a call for assistance from the Dimmit County Sheriff’s Office, who had received a report of a woman walking along FM 1917 with her hands bound with rope.

The woman explained that she had been providing food and water to a man behind her house for three days. Without warning, the man grabbed the woman, bound her feet and hands, and forced her into her car.

When the man tried to start the vehicle, the woman was able to escape.

Border Patrol agents and Dimmit County Sheriff’s deputies responded to the scene of the attempted abduction and found foot signs of the individual, leading away from the house.

After tracking the individual for some time with the use of Border Patrol and Dimmit County canines, officials encountered an unresponsive person matching the assailant’s description lying in the brush.

A trained Border Patrol Emergency Medical Technician treated the unresponsive subject and transported him to the hospital, where it was determined by doctors the subject had been faking his condition.

The woman who had been assaulted was able to identify the subject as the man who tried to kidnap her. Border Patrol agents were able to determine the subject was in the country illegally.

The subject was charged by the Dimmit County Sheriff's Office with burglary of a habitation with intent to commit a felony and aggravated kidnapping.

The subject faces immigration proceedings upon conclusion of the charges against him. He is currently being held at the Dimmit County jail without bail.
