Oregoon man faces charges after allegedly urinating on passengers onboard flight
PORTLAND, Ore. – An Oregon man faces charges after authorities
say he urinated on passengers on a flight from Anchorage to
Jeff Rubin, 27, was arrested early Friday after JetBlue Flight
47 arrived at Portland International Airport, KOIN-TV reported.
A police report says passengers and airline employees told
officers Rubin had been sleeping for most of the flight. About
30 minutes before landing, they said, he stood up and began
urinating through the crack between the seats in front of him —
and onto the passengers sitting there.
The report says he lost his balance and fell backward, splashing
urine on passengers, seats and luggage.
The cabin remained pretty calm, said Suzanna Caldwell, an Alaska
Dispatch News reporter who happened to be sitting two rows in
front of Rubin.
"It's not like anyone was screaming. I didn't even realize
anything had happened until the flight attendants came up to me
and told me police were going to come onboard," she told the
Anchorage newspaper for a story on its website Friday.
Caldwell, who said she was not urinated on, said officers had to
wake up Rubin when they got on board since he appeared to have
fallen asleep again.
An officer then began interviewing passengers.
"At one point, the officer was like, 'Who got peed on?'"
Rubin spent about five hours in jail and was released on his own
recognizance. He faces charges of criminal mischief and
Rubin did not immediately respond to a message seeking comment.
