NYPD cop intervenes in scuffle on JetBlue flight
Source: Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) An off-duty New York City police officer subdued and handcuffed an intoxicated passenger who attacked a flight attendant Sunday during a scuffle aboard a JetBlue plane.

Officer Anibal Mercado intervened after Antonio Ynoa of Brooklyn punched a flight attendant in the face early Sunday on JetBlue Flight 832 from the Dominican Republic to John F. Kennedy International Airport, the NYPD said.

About a half hour before the plane was scheduled to land at about 12:30 a.m., the flight attendant approached Ynoa and told him to stop drinking duty-free alcohol, police said. Ynoa became angry and punched the attendant in the face, police said.

Mercado, a patrol cop in the Bronx, told reporters that he felt compelled to intervene.

2. NYPD doesn't carry tasers
This is how they normally handle this stuff.

3. Ordinary cop on an airplane is no different than anyone else
IOW, no gun, no baton, no Taser, and not even handcuffs. The handcuffs used were plastic handcuffs stored on the aircraft, and probably zipcuffs.
