YouTube personality James Bates is going viral after pretending to be a Frontier Airlines flight attendant who duct-taped a passenger during a flight last week. 

On July 26, a Frontier Airlines flight was leaving Philadelphia and heading to Miami when 22-year-old Maxwell Berry became belligerent. He groped the breasts of two female flight attendants and physically assaulted a third before being duct-taped to his seat, Local 10 reported.

According to the arrest report, Berry had consumed several alcoholic beverages on the flight and was charged with three counts of battery. 

In the staged interview, the comedian turned a not-so-funny situation into a hilarious video that trended on Twitter Friday morning.
