On Friday, Jan. 5, 2018, United Airlines flight 895 destined for Hong Kong landed at Ted Stevens International Airport in Anchorage, Alaska, at about 4:50 p.m. Alaska Standard Time. The captain diverted off course after a male passenger defecated and made a mess in two of the plane’s lavatories. He also took off his shirt and attempted to flush it down a toilet.

According to the airlines’ spokesperson, “United flight 895, traveling from Chicago to Hong Kong, diverted to Anchorage last night due to a disruptive passenger. We provided hotel accommodations for our customers and are working to get them to their destinations as quickly as possible.”

The “disruptive” passenger was taken to Alaska Regional Hospital in Anchorage for a psychological evaluation but was not charged for leaving his crap behind.
