Last week, we told you about a spat during a flight to Colorado involving a woman and a man using Knee Defenders -- clips that prevent seats from reclining. Now, the man in question, James Beach, is telling his side of the story on the Today show. He says he initially removed the Knee Defenders as requested, but tried to put them back on after the woman aggressively reclined, nearly breaking his laptop -- actions that led to a thrown drink and the jet being diverted to Chicago.

While Beach (who wasn't arrested or charged with a crime) is sorry for his behavior and wishes he'd done things differently, he says he might use the Knee Defenders again. Here's the Today show report.
