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.
