DailyMail A United Airlines flight from Chicago to Hong Kong was diverted to Alaska after the flight crew reported a man on board had vandalized two airplane bathrooms by spreading human waste, airport police said on Friday. ‘We received a report of a passenger who had messed up the bathrooms with his own feces,’ Anchorage Airport Police Lieutenant Joe Gamache said by telephone. The man, a 22-year-old Vietnamese passport holder with U.S. residency, was escorted off the plane in handcuffs on Thursday night and met by law enforcement in the terminal, Gamache said. The passenger sitting next to the man said his family was sending him to Vietnam in an effort to help him stay out of ‘trouble’, KTVA reports. Tri Nguyen told KTVA: ‘He just was out of control and I tried to calm him down as much as I could.’ After being interviewed by authorities through a translator, he was transported to an Anchorage hospital for a mental evaluation. The man made no threats and did not try to interfere with the flight crew, Gamache said, adding that no charges have been filed. Other antics of the man, according to witnesses on the flight, were his shaking of seats and pouring beverages on the ground. One passenger described the excrement-filled scene to KTVA: ‘He had crap everywhere…He was stuffing his shirt in the toilet then wiping it on the walls.’ The passenger, BJ Canup, added that the passenger was ‘shirtless’. After the incident, families and children sitting around him were moved and replaced with ‘some really big guys’ to sit around him. The move was done without incident, witnesses said.’I was just asked to help out and was ready to do what I could,’ said one such man, who was 7-feet-tall. The pilot decided after the incident that the rest of the plane ride would be too risky for the pooper’s fellow passengers. United Airlines, owned by United Continental Holdings Inc , said there were 245 people on board the plane and said it provided hotel accommodations for its customers.
I’m not usually a fan of flights being diverted once they are up in the air and on the way to their destination, like a plane that was traveling from Los Angeles to Tokyo and was carrying celebrities John Legend and his wife Chrissy Teigen which turned around halfway across the Pacific Ocean because there was an unauthorized person on board, but if their is human shit all over the walls it’s a different situation. On a flight from Chicago to Hong Kong, a Vietnamese man apparently lost his mind, he took his shirt off and shoved it down the toilet then painted the plane’s walls brown with human feces. Disgusting. The plane was diverted to Alaska, where the passenger was taken to a hospital for a psychiatric evaluation, and the other passengers of The Brown Bomber were forced to stay in Alaska for a night until suitable transport could be found for them to continue their journey. In an unsanitary condition, where an unstable passenger is acting in a potentially dangerous manner, you have no choice to ground the plane and we are glad nobody was hurt during this bizarre incident.
