United Airlines Flight from Chicago Diverted to Alaska Over 'Disruptive Passenger'

Airport Operations says the Boeing 777 was grounded overnight for maintenance, leaving passengers stranded in Anchorage.

The landing had to be made because of a "passenger smearing faeces everywhere", police officials at Ted Stevens International Airport said. His excrement was spread throughout two of the bathrooms on board the plane, and the man had even taken off his shirt and tried to shove it into one of the plane's toilets, airport police said. He was cooperative with the flight crew and was seated when the flight landed in Anchorage.

Passenger Tri Nquyen sat next to the man, a family friend who offered to ensure his safe arrival in Vietnam.

That wasn't the only disturbance he caused on the fight, as he was also seen "shaking the seats all around him", according to passenger Tricia Mason.

United Airlines passengers found themselves in a fetid situation when their Chicago-to-Hong Kong flight made an unscheduled landing in Alaska after a man had smeared feces all over some of the plane's bathrooms, airport officials said. "We provided hotel accommodations for our customers and are working to get them to their destinations as quickly as possible". The passenger was taken by police to a local hospital for a psych evaluation.

Although the plane was met by both Federal Bureau of Investigation and airport authorities after landing in Anchorage, the man was not charged with a crime.
