In another episode of crazy airline news, we bring you a story of a drunk passenger urinating on another passenger’s luggage.
American Airlines flight 1344 was traveling from Chicago to Charlotte Douglas International Airport last Thursday when authorities say a passenger urinated on a woman’s luggage.
Authorities were called and asked to meet the plane at the gate to arrest the drunk passenger. Airline officials said that “due to an intoxicated passenger, American Airlines requested law enforcement meet flight 1344 once it arrived in Charlotte at 12:52 a.m. on Thursday.”
No additional information has been given on the intoxicated passenger. The victim is listed as a 28-year old woman, who was said not to have been harmed during the incident.
Charlotte Mecklenburg Police Department spokeswoman, Officer Cindy Wallace, told the Charlotte Observer late Friday that “criminal offenses occurring in flight are investigated by the FBI.” The FBI was made aware of the incident on the next afternoon.
As of today, no additional updates have been made on the investigation.
This is not the first incident of drunk passenger’s getting out of hand during flights. Last week, we told you about an incident on a Ryanair flight where two passengers got into a physical altercation over a woman not wearing shoes on the plane.
“It all started over a woman not wearing her shoes on the flight going to the toilet, and a very drunk man pulled her up about it, saying that someone would stand on her toes,” Ben Wardrop told the British Press Association
. “Then the woman’s boyfriend stepped in and tried to defuse the situation.”
“Once the plane landed and more alcohol was consumed the man and the woman’s boyfriend started arguing, both being very drunk they started to fight, and the man in the video with lots of blood was trying to get the man to calm down and he got hit on the nose,” Wardrop, who shot the footage that landed on social media, told the Press Association.
