A drunk American Airlines passenger urinated on another passenger’s luggage during a flight from Chicago to Charlotte, North Carolina late last week, police said.
According to a Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police report, obtained by The Charlotte Observer, authorities said a 28-year-old female passenger said another passenger had soiled her carry-on luggage with urine.
American Airlines requested that law enforcement meet the aircraft at the gate when the flight landed just before 1 a.m. Thursday.
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,” the newspaper reported.
The spokesperson did not go into further details about the incident.
Police communications officer Cindy Wallace told the Observer that “criminal offences occurring in-flight are investigated by the FBI.”
Police did not say if charges would be filed against the drunk passenger, adding that the FBI had been notified.
