He also face charges of interfering with the duties of a flight crew or attendant following the incident which occurred on July 21.
'You don't put your hands on my flight attendant!': Video footage shows the pilot pushing an intoxicated Kerr to the ground after he repeatedly refuses to take a seat and tries to force his way into the flight deck.
In the video, the pilot of the flight from Lexington, Kentucky and a female flight attendant can be seen and heard repeatedly asking Kerr to have a seat as he tries to leave the aircraft.
'Move, move, move,' Kerr said repeatedly as the flight attendant and pilot stood in the aisle blocking him from leaving.
The pilot says: 'Take a seat. I said take a seat sir.'
Kerr, who had drunk three whiskeys on the plane, then told the pilot that he didn't want to take a seat and the pilot said: 'I don't care what you want to do, you're going to take a seat right now.'
They went back and forth with Kerr until he pushed through them and shoved a flight attendant to the floor.
The pilot then tackled the man to the floor and restrained him.
The flight attendant's friend Tanise Love told the Observer the hostess is currently in physical therapy about three to four times a week.
'She's as angry as anyone would be, but she's also very forgiving,' Love told the newspaper.
'I don't think she's so much focused on the assailant or his wrongdoing, she's just focused on getting better.'
The Association of Flight Attendants-CWA (AFA) issued a statement to the Observer saying that 'alcohol is a leading cause of air-rage incidents'.
