Passenger Urinates In Aisle, Diverts Orlando Flight
Local 6 News and AP ^ | November 26, 2005

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- An intoxicated passenger who lit a cigarette and urinated in the aisle led pilots to divert a United Airlines flight from Orlando to Washington, D.C., an airline spokeswoman said.

The man, whose name the airline declined to release, was taken off flight 1502 in Charlotte and questioned by police, spokeswoman Robin Urbanski said.

The man was "acting extremely inappropriately," Urbanski said. "When you want to run a safe airline, we don't tolerate that type of activity on our aircraft."

A Charlotte-Mecklenburg police watch commander referred questions about an in-flight incident to the FBI in Charlotte, which did not immediately return a call seeking comment.

What the heck? Did they really have to divert the flight for this @ss hat's sake? Im pretty sure enlisting the help of a few burly passengers could have quelled this guy. And how the heck did he light a cigarette? They confiscate lighters at airports these days!!!

Channell #5 gives me an intense urge every single time. It must be banned as soon as possible to keep the planes flying.

I wonder if he got his DU T-shirt torn in the scuffle?

It's called wussification. Thank the lawyers for it.

Lighters don't set off the metal detector if you keep them in your pocket.

If I recall correctly, you are still allowed to carry two matchbooks (but can't have any 'strike-anywhere' matches).

Perhaps they should serve no more than one alchoholic drink to a passenger, if any.

Obviously it was the cigarette that did him in.

Maybe he has "specific identifying characteristics," and they don't want to taint the jury.

Or maybe don't let people board who are already drunk out of their mind.

Even if they're not releasing the passenger's name, I'm sure they're passing it around the airline community. It will be hard for this fellow to get on a plane for some time to come.

Great just great.

Now TSA is going to require that everyone go to the potty at the security checkpoint
