Drunk plane passenger 'urinates on girl, 11'
Angry scenes broke out on a flight in the US after a drunk man allegedly urinated on a sleeping 11-year-old girl.
Robert Vietze, 18, was arrested after stumbling from his seat and allegedly emptying his bladder on the child, who was travelling with her sister and father, the New York Post reports.
The young man later told police he was too drunk to realise what he was doing.
"I was drunk, and I did not realise I was p***ing on her leg," Vietze said, according to law-enforcement sources.
The girl's father returned from the toilet to catch the young man in the act.
A witness, who did not wish to be identified, said they woke up to a man yelling "and literally looking like he was about to punch (Vietze) in the face".
Police met the plane at the gate when it landed about 6.30am local time, and Vietze was issued a federal summons for indecent exposure.
Any jerk pissing on my daughter would have been put in a permanent coma!
yea.. I’m not sure I would have been so nice either. Actually I would have been the one taken away in cuffs while the kid would have been taken away on a stretcher with tubes sticking out of him.
I heard on the radio today that the charges were dismissed. Makes you wonder who this guy’s parents are.
And the guy still has his teeth?
What a disgraceful world we live in. Surely that is extreme child abuse - and in public, too!
Sounds like very drunken behavior, not anything malicious. Not saying he should get a pass, but it shouldn’t be blown out of all proportion, either.
From the NY Post story: The leaky loser expressed no remorse outside his family's palatial Vermont home, where he ignored questions about the incident and showed no interest in apologizing to his victim.
"We have no comment, nothing to say," snapped Vietze's mother, Abigail, as they hauled luggage and ski equipment from a gray BMW.
18 years old and that drunk on a plane? What is the age limit for purchasing alcohol?
Sentence him to cleaning airplane toilets, with a tootbrush, for the next year.
It sounds like he was in a drunken stupor and didn’t know what he was doing. That doesn’t make it OK but it points up that if you have a problem with alcohol, you need to get help. The next time he could drink himself into a stupor, drive drunk and kill a little girl.
He had to be served a lot of alcohol to get that drunk. The flight attendant should have stopped serving him after the second or third or fourth drink.
Money cannot buy love they say, but it buys just about everything else one could need,including good lawyers.
Actually,I think the father is to blame for spending too much time in the bathroom.
In Washington state I believe the legal blood alcohol limit for under 21 is 0.0, so at the least he would have gotten an intoxicated minor ticket which is no small thing. I wonder what it is in Oregon and New York...

Aboard ship we had a guy who when drunk would pee anywhere he happened to be at the time of his urge.
I’d be there to bail you out!
Indeed! I would beaten the rest of the piss out of him and then rubbed his nose in it.
Al I can say is,thank God that wasn’t my daughter. I would be in jail and the only ski team he would be on is the one in hell.
Amen to that!
So you're OK with apathetic crime. Sorry, there aren't special laws for "just drunk". Perhaps you can feel better that he wouldn't have felt the full experience of getting severly beaten.
Call it a life lesson about being drunk in public.
And I don't buy the "too drunk to realize" crap either. In my youth, I drank like a fish on occasion and NEVER had moments when I didn't realize where I was or what I was doing. Some people use alcohol for an excuse for what they would normally do if they could get away with it. Apparently, some people are gullible enough to go along.
I knew a Marine in my platoon who would do the samething. Native American; couldn’t handle the fire water. But it didn’t happen from social drinking: he’d have to be hammered almost blind.
It makes me wonder about the airline serving that much alcohol.
I knew a guy who would get up from bed (still in his drunken stupor) and open a drawer, the closet or sometimes even the refrigerator door to relieve himself...never “on somebody”, that I know of, though.
I think people's drunken misbehavior should be treated exactly the same as if they were sober.
“So you’re OK with apathetic crime. Sorry, there aren’t special laws for “just drunk”. Perhaps you can feel better that he wouldn’t have felt the full experience of getting severly beaten.”
Not OK with it. And there are laws against public drunkeness, and underage drinking. What he was charged with was “indecent exposure,” which I believe is a sex crime.
And I have been drunk enough on one or two occasions to not remember what happened the night before. And I did do things I wouldn’t have done sober, at least in public.
I’m sure there are more than a few tattoos and Vegas weddings that wouldn’t have happened without copious amounts of alcohol.
I read that the charges against this guy were dismissed. I don’t agree with that, either.
Having known my share of alcoholics, the random indiscriminate peeing thing is a definite sign you need help.
So the poor girl has to get felt up going through security then gets pee’d on?
Sounds like the makings of a very very bad porno movie.
I've seen it happen. I had a roommate in college who used to get so drunk that he'd pee in his closet, pee on his floor, pee practically anywhere but the toilet. He was essentially sleepwalking and would remember nothing the next morning.
I thought drunk passengers were not allowed to fly?
That is what I am wondering (and a coma is more like it, as opposed to the ‘scuffle’ referred to here). Goodness. If I had a daughter (or son) and some guy was urinating on her - that would not be a ‘scuffle.’ I would literally do as much damage to that man before anyone could get me off him, and with my background in Krav Maga and Arnis all I would need is a few seconds to take out his eyes, burst his eardrums and collapse his windpipe (by the time I get to his testicles it is possible someone will have got to me by then). In most places with actual human beings, no jury would find me guilty under the circumstances. A scuffle? Someone urinating on your daughter? Your 11 year old daughter? A ‘scuffle?’ That is absolutely laughable!
I think people’s drunken misbehavior should be treated exactly the same as if they were sober.
The flight attendant should never have served an 18 year old alcohol to begin with. The drinking age in every State is 21.
Stupid little punk is very lucky it wasn’t a member of my family. He’d be peeing through a catheter from now on.
Pulling out your penis in front of an 11 year old girl IS a sex crime, and if I had been that girl’s father, I would have reacted accordingly.
People that say they can’t control themselves when they drink, shouldn’t drink. People who still drink after that, shouldn’t be cut any slack.
And I’m still not buying the idea that being drunk changes people. It decreases their inhibitions, but it doesn’t turn them into different people. If someone has a proclivity to pull out their penis in public, but are able to control themselves, then they shouldn’t drink.
This actually happened fairly on during the flight. It appears he got hammered before he boarded. This shining light is also a member of the US Ski Team.
“Remembering nothing” is a convenient way to cast off shame. My experience is that such memory loss is extremely convenient for the person so afflicted.
“What is the age limit for purchasing alcohol?”
I thought it was 21 and that caught my immediate attention. Did the flight attendants serve this guy alcohol or was he stewed before getting on the plane? That being said, I think the father must have truly contained his anger. I can’t say that I would do the same thing if it had been my eleven year old daughter. Granted, he was tall but a good, hard kick to his “offending member” would have sobered him up a bit IMHO.
If this degenerate is 18 years or age, why the heck wasn’t he charged with underage drinking?
In my neck of the woods no one would be allowed to “get to you”.
“... felt up then pee’d on.. sounds like the makings of a very bad porno movie”.
Or a RAP video! LOL!
Not on JetBlue.
Dave Chappelle as R. Kelly “I want to piss on you”
“Sounds like very drunken behavior, not anything malicious. Not saying he should get a pass, but it shouldnt be blown out of all proportion, either.”
Still requires an apology.
“Native American; couldnt handle the fire water”
I heard folks say that’s bigoted, but it’s true in a lot of instances. Maybe not all, but all full Native americans that I have known and those with much Native American blood are horrible when they’re drunk. Something about not being able to metabolize alcohol normally or something.
A drunk Indian is a sight to behold. I prefer to stay out of the way if I see it coming
R. Kelly... that was the rapper’s name! Thanks... not remembering would have driven me crazy all day!
If I were that child's dad, I'd be raising holy heck that some kind of charges aren't pending.
And if American Olympic team doesn't dump the guy, more heck oughta be raised.
“Still requires an apology.”
Yes, absolutely. A very contrite one.
