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.
