His celebrity wife, model and former MTV VJ Daisy Fuentes, snapped the images of flight attendants and passengers trying to get an unruly flyer to take his seat.

"On our flight from Hanoi to Seoul a guy sitting in the next row from us got crazy & started attacking the flight attendants & passengers," Fuentes posted. "When he started pushing the female staff and pulling them by the hair @therichardmarx was the first to help subdue him."

Fuentes said the male passenger acted up for four hours and the crew had trouble controlling him.

“They didn’t know how the use the taser & they didn’t know how to secure the rope around him (he got loose from their rope restraints 3 times),” she said.
