(David) Cornacchia, who played 67 games for the Florida Everblades last season, was sentenced to a year and a day in federal prison and ordered to pay $4,000 in fines on Monday for interfering with a flight crew last year.
On an American Airlines flight from Toronto to Dallas on Dec. 27, Cornacchia got drunk, slapped a flight attendant, head-butted a passenger and exposed his genitals in an effort to urinate in his seat.
“I don’t think anybody could read that (pre-sentencing) report and not be horrified for the passengers on that plane,” Judge John E. Steele said. “It was not a proud day for you.”
The original story of this disturbance appeared on KK in late December.
A hockey player has been arrested after being accused of assaulting a flight attendant, exposing himself and head-butting a passenger on an American Airlines flight into DFW Airport. He is now facing federal charges.
An FBI agent greeted the plane at the international terminal on Thursday night and took the minor league player into custody.
According to court records, the pilot declared an on-board emergency when the flight attendants had difficulty restraining the player.
David Cornacchia, the arrested hockey player, was soft-spoken on Friday afternoon as he left the federal courthouse in Dallas
