Is the tumbling real estate market making people snap? Earlier this week, Mathias Guerrand-Hermès, an heir to the French fashion company and a real estate investor, went nuts on an Air France flight, allegedly attacking the crew and grabbing the pilot's crotch. Today we learn that real estate mogul Kent Swig (left) was assaulted last month by business partner Yair Levy, who now stands accused of beating Swig with a metal ice bucket over an Upper West Side real estate deal gone sour.

Mathias Guerrand-Hermès, an heir to the French fashion house (and the ex-husband of the socialite Valesca Guerrand-Hermès), was arraigned today on charges he assaulted an Air France captain on a flight from Paris on Tuesday and then tried to grab the pilot's crotch and punch him. It took four people to subdue him and he spent the rest of the trip shackled to a seat in the first-class compartment. The polo-playing real estate investor could face a 20-year prison sentence if he's convicted, although given he has no criminal record, he isn't expected to do much hard time. Consider this a reminder not to mix your prescription medication with alcohol at 30,000 feet. [NYT/City Room]
