Washington: A 27-year-old man from the US state of Oregon was jailed after urinating on several passengers, seats and luggage on a flight.
Jeff Rubin was taken into custody Friday after the JetBlue Flight 47 he was traveling in landed at Portland International Airport, police said.
Rubin was asleep for most of the flight, but about 30 minutes before the flight was scheduled to land, "he stood up and began urinating through the crack of the seat onto the passengers seated in front of him," KOIN.Com reported.
As he continued to relieve himself, Rubin lost his balance and fell backwards and "urinate(d) upwards which got the passengers and seats next to him as well as some other passengers' personal belongings," police said.
When the officers boarded the aircraft, they found Rubin "slumped over asleep in his seat".
Rubin, who lives in Gresham Oregon, spent about 5 hours in jail after he was booked into the Multnomah County Detention Center, police said, adding that he was charged with one count each of second-degree criminal mischief and offensive littering.
