Adding "throw a bachelor party" to the list of things you should never do on a plane, a group of revelers from the United Kingdom were kicked off an international flight and arrested for being too out of control.

Among those arrested for disrupting the flight was the groom, which is not the ideal way for a bachelor party to end.

According to Joshua Berlinger of, a group of 12 men celebrating a bachelor party were on a Ryanair flight from London to Bratislava, Slovakia, when attendants on the plane refused to serve the group alcohol.

According to German media outlets, the group became abrasive and one of the men attempted to strip his clothes off in protest of the crew’s refusal to serve them alcohol, forcing the pilot to make an emergency landing due to the men’s actions possibly jeopardizing the safety of the passengers onboard.
