25-year-old drunken mess Michael Kerr messed with the wrong flight crew when he tried to forcibly exit an American Airlines flight prematurely. According to the Lexington Herald-Leader, the crew was still waiting for the gate to attach itself to the plane before letting passengers deplane the flight when the incident occurred.

Kerr, who reportedly drank three Jack Daniels during the flight, tried to push his way off the plane. A flight attendant tried to get him to sit back down, even blocking the exit with her body, but when Kerr started to get physical, a pilot intervened. It's kind of awesome.

"Whatever you do is going on Facebook, and you’re a complete loser!" yelled Kerr in the video, which makes this whole thing wonderfully ironic and chock-full of karma.

Kerr was faces charges of being intoxicated and disruptive, assault on the female crew member, communicating threats, and interfering with a flight crew or attendant. He was arraigned in federal court on Aug. 1 before being released on $20,000 bond. He was also fired from his job, is now barred from flying on commercial airlines and is barred from ever contacting the flight attendant in the video (who, reportedly, is in physical therapy from the injuries she sustained).

The video was shot by Brian Colón, a flight attendant for Norwegian Airlines, who said he was scared for the flight attendant's life as she was repeatedly harassed by Kerr. He said has never seen or experienced anything like this on a flight before.

And he should know. He is a flight attendant.

The only thing more questionable that Kerr's behavior is his haircut. Sideburns only, dude? Really? Were you drunk when you went to the barber, too?
