Shoshana Godwin, the passenger sitting next to him told Seattle news KIRO 7 that “he kept stopping to go into his bag and then I watched him take a pill out of his bag.” She also added that he said he needed to “cancel his flight and get off the plane, and just was kind of speaking a little gibberish.”

According to the New York Post, Fragiacomo had to be restrained by the flight crew and was “babbling incoherently and attempting to kiss two flight attendants.”

“If you continue to restrain me, there’s going to be problems,” Fragiacomo told the flight attendants at one point during during the incident.

Fragiacomo admitted to authorities that he had ingested GHB, cocaine and Xanax three hours before takeoff.

The jet was forced to make an emergency landing at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport at 9:45 a.m. EST.

Fragiacomo has been a known face around New York nightlife since his days as a go-go boy at Splash in Chelsea. When authorities asked for identification he directed them to a website that lists the services he provides as a barber, including a “hot shave in the privacy of your own home.”

Alaska Airlines spokeswoman Halley Knigge told the Associated Press that Fragiacomo “attempted to access one of the doors in the rear of the aircraft” and was “removed by law enforcement” upon the plane’s landing—she noted that it is impossible to open the emergency door while the cabin is pressurized and the plane is in flight.

Fragiacomo was taken to Fairview Southdale Hospital in Edina, Minnesota.
