About an hour into a red-eye American Airlines flight from San Francisco to Charlotte on Saturday, a passenger pulled his pants down, arched his back, and urinated on the floor of the airplane, according to an affidavit filed by the FBI Sunday.
Jordan Gardner, of Ludlow, Ky., was met by Charlotte-Mecklenburg police after the plane landed at 7:45 a.m. Sunday. He is being detained at Mecklenburg County Jail pending a hearing Thursday. He faces a criminal complaint of destruction of aircraft, according to court documents.
The passenger sitting next to Gardner summoned a flight attendant, who saw Gardner pulling up his pants, according to the report. The flight attendant sent him to the bathroom.
