Passenger pleads guily to interfering with flight crew members on Hawaii flight

HONOLULU, Oahu, Hawaii — An airline passenger accused of getting out of control during an 11-hour New York-to-Hawaii flight has pleaded guilty to interfering with flight crew members and attendants — even though he says he has no memory of the incident.

The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reports that 43-year-old Ricardo Caceres entered his plea in U.S. District Court in Honolulu on Friday. He faces a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison during a hearing set for September.

The newspaper reports that Caceres, a native of Mexico, may also face immigration consequences.

Caceres was accused of throwing water and spitting food at a flight attendant, then shoving the attendant against lavatory doors.

The FBI says Caceres also bit a Federal Air Marshal deputy on the leg while authorities were trying to handcuff him.
