HAGATNA, Guam (AP) - A Korean Air passenger who started a fight with a flight attendant who refused to serve him more beer has been sentenced to more than two years in prison.

The Pacific Daily News reports a judge sentenced Kwon Woo Sung on Monday to three years in prison. But the South Korean man was given credit for time spent under house arrest and in federal detainment, leaving 28 months left on his sentence.

The judge gave attorneys another day to consider home confinement as an alternative for Kwon at the request of his attorney. The hearing will continue Wednesday.

Kwon pleaded guilty to interfering with flight crew members and attendants for his behavior on an April flight from Seoul to Guam, during which he had to be restrained by other passengers.
