Violent Passenger On Perth Flight Cops $26,000 Fine

A violent passenger who forced a Brisbane-bound Qantas flight to return to Perth after he mixed Xanax with alcohol has been ordered to pay almost $26,000 in fines and reparations.

Luke Macdonald Taylor, 39, threatened crew members and tried to bite a federal officer during the incident in July 2017.

The fly-in fly-out worker was fined $10,500 in the WA District Court on Tuesday and must also pay $15,207 in reparations to Qantas.
