A Jetblue Airbus A320-200, flight B6-832 (dep Nov 26th) from Santiago (Dominican Republic) to New York JFK,NY (USA), was enroute at FL360 about 30 minutes prior to estimated arrival when a flight attendant told a male, obviously already intoxicated passenger (22) to stop drinking carry-on duty free alcohol. Following some verbal exchange the passenger struck the flight attendant into the face. Another passenger, a policeman, subdued the unruly passenger and restrained him, while the aircraft continued for a safe landing at New York's John F. Kennedy Airport.
The passenger was taken into custody by New York police and has to appear in court facing charges of assault and interference with flight crew
