A man of the Netherlands, became drunk and wild during a flight from Amsterdam to California, according to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Jonah Cayle Snow, who was flying with his girlfriend Nikki Zeebregts, became drunk and started smoking on the KLM Royal Dutch flight on Wednesday.

Snow was arrested when the flight landed in San Francisco. He was charged with interference with flight crew members and attendants.

He faces up to 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine if convicted. He was booked into jail, and his bail has been set at $25,000.

According to the criminal complaint, Zeebregts and Snow were only allowed on the flight after promising not to drink alcohol.

The two were already drunk when they tried to board the plane after drinking alcohol on a previous flight from Dusseldorf, Germany.

During the flight to San Francisco, Zeebregts and Snow began fighting. After the fight turned violent, the flight attendants separated the couple.

Snow then lit a cigarette and began drinking alcohol. When he was told to put out his cigarette, Snow became violent. He attacked a flight attendant and bit off his ear.
