Flight redirected to Alaska due to man 'smearing feces everywhere'

Flight redirected to Alaska due to man 'smearing feces everywhere'

Federal Bureau of Investigation agents and Alaska's Ted Stevens International Airport police then met the poopy passenger, who had cooperated with flight attendants after the foul episode aboard the Boeing 777.

A United passenger was in some deep poo-poo after smearing feces all over the plane's bathroom, which caused the Chicago-to-Hong Kong flight to divert to Anchorage.

Airport police reported that the passenger, an adult male, had been smearing his own feces on the walls of the bathroom with his shirt.

Passengers on a Hong Kong-bound flight from O'Hare International Airport made an unexpected landing in Alaska after a man made a mess in two of the lavatories on the plane. There were more than seven hours left in the planned 16-hour flight when the emergency landing had to be made. Airport Police say the subject was taken to Providence Hospital for a psych evaluation.

The identity of the man who caused the disturbance has not been released, KTUU reports, but he cooperated with airport police and Federal Bureau of Investigation agents who questioned him after the plane landed in Anchorage. No charges have been filed.

The plane was held for maintenance.

United Airlines has not yet commented on the incident.
