Sheriff David Clarke Attacked By Man On Plane - His Response Is Priceless

A sheriff flying from Milwaukee, Wisconsin to Charlotte, North Carolina had one of the worst flights ever. Another man on the flight who was reportedly drinking heavily spent the entire two hours berating and heckling the officer. When the flight landed, the man was arrested.

Preston Bluntson, 36, made the flight unpleasant for everyone, according to passengers on the plane. Blunston would not leave Sheriff David A. Clarke Jr. alone. As Bluntson became increasingly intoxicated, he became increasingly loud and obnoxious.

“The guy was very abusive,” said one passenger who prefers to remain anonymous. "Probably the last 20 minutes it really escalated and focused on Clarke."

The black man reportedly used racial epithets toward Clarke, who is also black. Bluntson told Clarke he was 'not one of us.'

Other passengers tried to get Bluntson to calm down and be quiet, but he ignored them and focused most of his aggression toward Clarke. Reports say Clarke kept composed through the flight, telling Bluntson only once to 'shut up.'

“In all my years flying, I’ve never seen anything like it,” the passenger said. “The sheriff handled himself extremely well. It could have gotten a lot worse because the guy was not backing down.”

When the flight landed, Clarke held Bluntson down and police officers boarded the plane to arrest him.
