Two former RIM executives who were recently removed from an Air Canada flight on its way to Beijing after causing a drunken raucous apparently gnawed their way through plastic handcuffs and tape, new court documents reveal. The two men, aged 38 and 45, were allegedly intoxicated before boarding the plane and then “drank, passed out, and woke up to continue consuming alcohol and yelling at one another,” CBS said. One of the executives laid down in the aisle and kick the floor while he was being restrained. In another case, one man “assaulted a flight attendant and threatened to punch her,” a court document said, noting that the man also threatened to “off people when they left the plane.” The two men have since been fired from Research In Motion.
