Flight Attendant Escapes With Beer

Flight attendant Steven Slater, 38 years old, was struck in the head with luggage that a passenger was trying to unload from an overhead compartment, according to an airport official with knowledge of the incident.Slater demanded an apology from the passenger, the official said, but the passenger refused. The two argued before the passenger told Slater to "f-- off", the official said. Slater then got on the plane's PA system and directed that same obscenity at all the passengers and added that he especially meant it for the man who refused to apologize.Slater is alleged to have then activated the plane's inflatable emergency slide, grabbed two beers from the galley, then slid down the chute, the official said.
