David Alan Burk was a first class passenger on a Delta flight (flight 517) from Minneapolis to Anchorage, Alaska when he apparently became drunk and disorderly on the flight.

According to Fox Business, Burk, 61 is accused of forcing himself on a male flight attendant only identified as T.C.  Burk had become upset with T.C. when he was refused a pre flight drink.

A few minutes after takeoff, Burk got up to use the restroom. He stopped by the galley where T.C. was located. According to an affidavit, "Burk stood next to T.C. and told him, ‘Oh, you’re so beautiful."

Flight attendant, T.C. thanked Burk for the compliment and then Burk asked "Can I have a kiss?’ T.C. replied, "No, thank you" to which BURK then said, "Okay, well on the neck then." While the plane was in flight, BURK then grabbed his neck, pulling the attendant toward him, and purposefully kissed T.C.'s neck."

T.C. the flight attendant said he felt "very uncomfortable and caught off-guard" by Burk's action. Burk later took his seat and fell asleep.

The incident was reported to the captain and he alerted Airport Dispatch. Burk was arrested after being identified as a security threat.

"Delta has no tolerance for inappropriate behavior on any of our aircraft or ground facilities," the airline told FOX Business in a statement. "We are cooperating with law enforcement in this matter and thank the authorities for investigating and prosecuting unruly passenger conduct."

Burk was arrested by police when the Delta plane landed in Anchorage. He is scheduled to appear in court tomorrow (4/27).

LOOK: See how much gasoline cost the year you started driving

To find out more about how has the price of gas changed throughout the years, Stacker ran the numbers on the cost of a gallon of gasoline for each of the last 84 years. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (released in April 2020), we analyzed the average price for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline from 1976 to 2020 along with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for unleaded regular gasoline from 1937 to 1976, including the absolute and inflation-adjusted prices for each year.

Read on to explore the cost of gas over time and rediscover just how much a gallon was when you first started driving.
