(Newser) – A descendant of the Guinness brewing family got so drunk on a long flight that she "cavorted" with a male passenger, took off her skirt, and threw her son’s dirty diaper into a row of seats, observers say. A flight attendant said “she had absolutely no clue about the child and the way she was behaving was not tipsy, but drunk,” the Daily Telegraph reports.
