Lutsenko, 44, was prevented from boarding a flight to Seoul, South Korea, on Monday after airport officials noticed that he and his 19-year-old son, with whom he was traveling, were severely drunk, a Frankfurt police spokesman said.
When they were stopped, both passengers flew into a rage, shouted and threw their mobile telephones, police said.
Three male police officers and one female officer were hurt in the altercation, the police spokesman said, describing the incident as an "ugly situation."
More salacious details to follow (if there are any).
UPDATE: Ukraine's Interior Ministry hits back.
