A Lakewood man is facing federal charges for allegedly punching a flight attendant on an airplane during an international flight.
Edgar Nonga, 53, was charged with interfering with a flight crew on Monday, according to the FBI.
Nonga allegedly swore at crew members and punched a flight attendance twice, including once in the face, according to prosecutors.
Nonga was restrained by the crew and with the help of at least five passengers, and was arrested when the plane laned at LAX Sunday morning.
If convicted, Nonga faces up to 20 years in prison.
