LOS ANGELES – The Philippine Airlines passenger accused of punching a flight attendant while drunk appeared in federal court on Tuesday to enter his guilty plea.

Edgar Nonga settled with prosecutors on a plea deal in the February incident when he was believed to have been drunk on a Los Angeles-bound PAL flight.

He then allegedly went on to punch a crew member during his tantrum before being restrained.

Under the agreement, Nonga plead guilty to one count of simple assault within a maritime and territorial jurisdiction considered a Class B misdemeanor.

Nonga will be back in court on August first for his sentencing hearing.

He faces a maximum prison sentence of six months and a $1,000 fine.
