NEW YORK — John Frieda entered a plea of guilty Thursday at the United States District Court Southern District of California on misdemeanor charges of assault on an airliner for an incident that took place on a flight last month from New York to San Diego. The charge of interference with a flight attendant, a felony, was dropped as part of Frieda’s guilty plea to the lesser charge. Frieda was ordered to pay a $2,500 fine and will be on unsupervised probation for six months.

Frieda, founder and co-owner of John Frieda Professional Hair Care, was arrested by Federal Bureau of Investigation agents on June 17 at the San Diego Convention Center as he attended the National Association of Chain Drug Stores Marketplace Meeting. He was released on $20,000 bond the following day.
