MIAMI (AP) - A former Texas hand surgeon has been sentenced to 30 days in federal prison for interfering with the crew of a British Airways flight earlier this year.
U.S. District Judge Donald Graham in Miami also fined Michael Glyn Brown $5,000 at a hearing Wednesday. Brown pleaded guilty in July to the charge.
Court documents show Brown acted disruptively on the London-to-Miami flight, including putting both hands around the neck of a female flight attendant and squeezing her. Brown also threatened to strip naked aboard the plane.
Brown's company in Houston, Brown Medical Center, is in the midst of a bankruptcy restructuring. Brown, now a Miami resident, also is in the midst of a divorce from his fourth wife.
