What Did A Guy Do To Cause A United Flight To Be Diverted?

Two passengers on a flight from Newark to Denver got into an altercation when one of them used a gadget designed to prevent the seat in front of you from reclining.

A gentleman used the “knee defender” while working on his laptop on the flight.  The woman in front of him was trying to recline, but couldn’t.  The flight attendant asked the man to remove the device but he refused.

That’s when the woman turned and poured a cup of water on the man.  The flight was then diverted to Chicago and the two passengers were not allowed to continue on to Denver.

Do you agree with what he did or not?
