A passenger with Indian citizenship was accused of urinating on a fellow passenger on an American Airlines flight from New York to New Delhi on Saturday, a report said.

According to the Indian news agency ANI, a named 21-year-old US student was drunk when the incident involving a US citizen occurred on the flight. He was banned from traveling on American Airlines, the latter airline said.

“American Airlines flight 292, with service from John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) to Indira Gandhi International Airport (DEL) was met by local law enforcement upon arrival at DEL due to a disruptive customer . The flight landed safely at 9:50 pm,” an American Airline statement said, according to ANI.

“Upon arrival at the aircraft, Purser reported that the passenger was heavily intoxicated and was not following the instructions of the crew on board. He was constantly arguing with the operating crew, was unwilling to sit down and was constantly endangering the safety of the crew and plane and after disturbing the safety of fellow passengers, finally peed on the pax sitting in 15G,” said American Airlines.

The Press Trust of India reported that the drunken man was asleep when the incident happened and later apologized to his fellow passenger who complained.

The Delhi Police said the legal action was taken based on a complaint from American Airlines, per PTI.

The flight left New York at 9:16 pm on Friday and landed almost 15 hours later at the Indira Gandhi International Airport here at 10:12 pm on Saturday.
