    On UA 1462 from Newark to Denver, Mr. Bozo was using a Knee Defender (not permitted on United aircraft) to prevent Ms. Bozo, seated ahead of him, from reclining her seat. When Mr. Bozo refused to remove the Knee Defender, Ms. Bozo threw a glass of water in his face.

    United deposited both of them in the hands of law enforcement personnel at O'Hare and continued on to Denver without them. :D

    Ridiculous all the way around. I understand the use of the knee defender (as a guy that hardly fits in any of the major airline seating due to height, leg length and shoulder width), I also understand it is forbidden on UA flights. For Ms. Bozo, this was an easy fix, point out the prohibited item, and be courteous to the person behind you while leaning back. I myself have asked a person in front of me to not recline all the way back due to the fact that it crushes my knees. The best solution for Mr. Bozo is probably going to be something along the lines of spend the extra money for an exit row or bulkhead seat.
