In a statement, the police force said the man was "apparently intoxicated and causing disturbances" inside the plane, which already had all the passengers on board and was "about to close its doors and take off".

"Thus, the captain of the aircraft refused to let him fly, as his behaviour jeopardised the safety of the flight, its crew and other passengers. In the presence of the police, the man, who exuded a strong odour of alcohol, showed he was aggressive while insulting the police with gestures, simulating a shot to the head", adds the note.

The detainee "is suspected of committing the crime of resistance and coercion and insults against an employee".
