On October the 10th, Hatam Hamad, necked five glasses of wine and marched down a British Airways plane with his penis out before slapping a passenger.
The father-of-nine and grandfather of 25 who ‘all reside together,’ Hamad, runs a family gas station in New Orleans. He was handed a six-week jail sentence at Uxbridge Magistrates Court on Friday, suspended for one year, after he admitted assault by beating.
Mr Vilmenay, president of New Orleans TV channel WDSU, who was not in court, explained he was travelling with his wife and two children, aged eight and five, he had just taken his daughter to the bathroom and returned to his seat.
Uxbridge Magistrates Court heard how the drama unfolded when Palestinian-born Hamad, 56, put his privates three inches from Joel Vilmenay’s face.
In a statement, he said: “After about five minutes a male, Mr Hamad, came down the aisle to me, directly to my chair where I was sitting with my kids.
“My daughter was awake and my son was asleep.”
“This male had his penis out and exposed within three inches of my face.”
“At this time I felt shocked and then attempted to stand up and shouted at the male, ‘what are you doing?’”
Mr Vilmenay confronted Hamad, who “responded by grunting” before exposing himself to another passenger.
The grandad-of-25 then slapped the TV executive in the chest “with some force” before cabin crew took him to the back of the plane.
“At this moment he used the back of his right hand and slapped me in the chest with some force.”
