Jeff Rubin was taken into custody on 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.
“As he continued to relieve himself, Rubin lost his balance and fell backwards and urinated upwards which got the passengers and seats next to him as well as some other passengers’ personal belongings,” the police report stated.
When the officers boarded the aircraft, they found Rubin slumped over asleep in his seat. The crew and the fellow passengers were completely shocked by the act committed by the drunk passenger.
“Flight 45 from Anchorage, Alaska, was met by local authorities upon arrival into Portland at 4:26 am on Friday following an incident involving an intoxicated customer,” the airline said in a statement.
Rubin, who lives in Gresham Oregon, spent about five hours in jail after he was booked into the Multnomah County Detention Center, police said. He was charged with one count each of second-degree criminal mischief and offensive
