Revs GM, VP and assistant coach subdue unruly passenger on flight to LA

The New England Revolution sit at 2-0 in SuperLiga action after a pair of wins this week, and the Revs boast the best record in MLS, but it was their act of heroism on a plane that might be their best accomplishment yet.

Two Revolution players and a team staff member Three Revolution staff members helped subdue an unruly passenger on their flight from Boston to Los Angeles earlier today. And who said that having MLS teams fly commercial was a bad thing?

Revs general manager Craig Tornberg, assistant coach Gwynne Williams and VP of player personnel Mike Burns subdued the passenger after he stripped naked and put his clothes back on before attempting to open an emergency door on the plane.

The Revs staff members restrained the man before he was placed in handcuffs by flight attendents.

(Insert your "Tornberg and Burns know all about restraining people, just ask Taylor Twellman and Shalrie Joseph" jokes here.)

There is no truth to the rumor that the unruly passenger was a Real Salt Lake fan yelling at Steve Nicol for all the All-Star Game snubs.

The Revs face Chivas USA in SuperLiga on Sunday in Fullerton, California.
