Being on a tight flight is part of flying. The seats are cramped and unless you're in First Class, you're normally smushed in like a sardine. One man decided he was going to do whatever it took to not be any more cramped up than he had to be.

On a flight from Newark to Denver, one male passenger used what is called a 'Knee Defender' that, when installed, prevents the seat in front of you from being reclined.

After the man refused to remove the device, the woman who was sitting in the seat in front of him, got up, flipped out and threw a cup of water in his face. Both were removed from the flight after it was diverted to Chicago.
