United Airlines flight 895 was headed from Chicago to Hong Kong but had to be diverted because an adult male reportedly defaced bathrooms on the plane with his own poop. He also took off his shirt and tried to stuff it down a toilet, according to KTVA.
The plane was redirected to Anchorage, Alaska.
The man was reportedly cooperative with the flight crew following the incident, remaining in his seat when the flight landed in Anchorage. After FBI agents and airport police interviewed the passenger, no charges were filed. Police said the man was taken to the hospital for a psychiatric evaluation.
The flight was grounded overnight for maintenance, and passengers were provided with hotel accommodations until their flight could continue to Hong Kong on Friday.
United said its flight crew “followed proper procedure,” KTVA reported.
