American Airlines flight forced to make emergency landing in NY after passenger urinated in aisle, exposed himself

An American Airlines flight to New Hampshire was forced to be make an emergency landing Wednesday after a disruptive passenger allegedly exposed himself and urinated in the aisle of the airplane, officials said.

The 25-year-old Oregon man was arrested and charged with indecent exposure after the flight, which took off from Buffalo, returned to the Buffalo Niagara International Airport.

He was released after making an initial appearance in a Buffalo federal court, according to the US Attorney’s Office for the Western District of New York.

The flight was fortunately able to depart from Buffalo shortly after the incident, American Airlines said in a statement.

“We thank our team members for their professionalism and our customers for their understanding,” the airline wrote.

The passenger told police he was flying from Portland, Oregon to Manchester, New Hampshire and had several whiskey and colas before boarding the initial flight and had even more during a layover in Chicago, according to authorities.

While on the flight from Buffalo, he got up to use the restroom and was returning to his seat when he claimed he had a “medical urination problem,” according to the criminal complaint.
