This news article explains that Gov. Romney was “physically assaulted Monday by a fellow passenger on a flight from Vancouver, Canada, to Los Angeles:”
Apparently, he asked a passenger who was seated and reclining in front of his wife, Ann, to move his seat upright during take off.
“The passenger became physically violent. Governor Romney did not retaliate, but instead let the airline crew respond to the incident.” Said Romney Spokesman Eric Fehrnstrom.
Read the rest of the article here, which explains that the violent passenger was arrested at the gate.
(What the odds were that Mrs. Romney would be seated right behind Gov. Huckabee on a flight? I kid, I kid.)
Glad everyone was okay.
