A United Airlines flight from Newark, New Jersey to Miami made an unexpected stop in South Carolina last week after police say a man bit another passenger.

Police say the suspect, 45-year-old John Yurkovich Jr., seemed “agitated” after a trip to the bathroom.

After asking for a glass of water, he began to “scream and thrash around.”

According to the police report, that’s when Yurkovich punched a passenger sitting next to him several times. While other people tried to restrain him, the same passenger was also allegedly bit on the ear (which later required seven stitches).

A doctor on board tried to subdue Yurkovich with a shot of Benadryl until the flight could land.
