A passenger flying with American Airlines was met by police upon arrival in Charlotte, North Carolina, after reportedly urinating on a female traveler’s luggage during the flight. According to a statement the airline provided to Fox News, the passenger, who was not identified, was described as being “intoxicated” on the aircraft. The airline also confirmed that it had requested law enforcement be at the airport to meet the flight, which originated in Chicago before touching down in Charlotte Douglas International Airport just before 1:00 a.m. last Thursday. Unfortunately, Thursday’s incident marks the latest in a long stream of urination incidents aboard commercial aircraft, following the Frontier Airlines passenger who peed on the seat directly in front of him in May 2018, or the drunken traveler on All Nippon Airways who urinated on a fellow passenger in August.

WEIRD NEWS: Brought to you by
After his 73-year-old mother refused to dress his mannequin, a Florida Man shoved the woman to ground and began stuffing dumplings in her mouth, a forced feeding that left the victim unable to breathe. The woman told cops she was in the home’s backyard when her 40-year-old son asked her to “dress his mannequin.” When the elderly woman declined, Dankner “stood in the screen door” blocking his mother’s path back inside the home. Cops report that the victim pushed the mannequin to the ground, prompting her son to abandon the doorway to pick up the mannequin. A confrontation in the home’s kitchen soon followed. Dankner then “grabbed small dumplings made for dinner and started to shove them into” his mother’s mouth. The woman told a deputy that she “could not breathe” while the dumplings were forced on her. Charged with domestic battery by strangulation and aggravated domestic battery on a victim over 65, Dankner is being held without bond in the county jail. (
