The child accusing Michael Jackson of molestation was a "rude, discourteous and really unpleasant" passenger on an aeroplane flight, a stewardess said at the singer's child molestation trial.

Teenager GAVIN ARVIZO appallingly misbehaved on a journey with Jackson from Miami to Santa Barbara, California, in February 2003 and even threw potato at a sleeping doctor travelling with the THRILLER star, according to CYNTHIA ANN BELL.

She told the Santa Maria, California, courtroom yesterday (30MAR05), "The initial flinging of mashed potatoes was not playful. Throwing mashed potatoes at a sleeping man?"

Jackson is on trial for 10 felony charges of child molestation, administering an intoxicating agent and conspiracy involving allegations of child abduction, false imprisonment and extortion.
