Dr. 90210, action hero

He restrains an unruly passenger on a plane:

Dr. Robert Rey, a plastic surgeon who practices martial arts, told The Associated Press he got out of his seat and intervened when he heard the man make a “big noise” as he pushed a female flight attendant toward the cockpit.

“When you get a black belt, at that stage your brain just clicks into action,” the doctor said. “I restrained this gentleman in a very aggressive way without hurting him.”

    Flight crewmembers described the man as “very frail,” Sanez said.

    Just another celebrity moment for Dr. Rey. I understand that for his next trick he will ‘take out’ a blind man attempting to jay walk.

    Good for him!! Just because the guy was older doesn’t mean it’s not scary. Other passengers also had to intervene and the man did knock down a flight attendant. All he did was subdue him, so I think that’s brave. Many people would just sit there and do nothing. The pilot could have been distracted if the guy did make it to the cockpit. I say way to go Dr Ray!!
