Using an airplane bathroom is often a nose-plugging experience, but passengers on a United Airlines flight from Chicago to Hong Kong encountered a new level of awful on Thursday night. KTVA reports the plane had to land in Anchorage after police say an unnamed male flier "smear[ed] feces everywhere," with everywhere allegedly encompassing two bathrooms, per KTUU. He also reportedly removed his shirt and tried to shove it into a toilet. KTVA describes him as "cooperative" by the time the plane landed around 6:30pm local time at Ted Stevens International Airport, and police noted he had no altercations with the flight crew.
The passenger was taken to a hospital where a psych evaluation was planned, and the rest of those on board were forced to spend some time in Alaska, as the plane was grounded through Friday afternoon so that clean-up could occur and maintenance could be performed, reports McClatchy. It notes the 16-hour flight had seven hours to go when the emergency landing occurred. (Read more feces stories.)
