While many of us may have friends, or ourselves, that have pissed in odd places while on a drunken stupor, this is most definitely a unique story. Eighteen-year-old Robert Vietze had consumed 8 drinks while on a red eye flight from Portland, Oregon to Vermont. With so much alcohol in his system, it’s obvious that he would need to use the restroom.
Unfortunately, he misjudged where the restroom was on the plane and instead started pissing on an eleven-year-old girl who was on the flight with her sister and father. Luckily, for Vietze, the sister and father were in the CORRECT restrooms and not urinating on their daughter/sister.
I was drunk, and I did not realize I was pissing on her leg,” the 6-foot-4, 195-pound Vietze told law enforcement.
After flight attendants interfered, more chaos commenced on this JetBlue flight. Another passenger started complaining that they had chest pains an hour before the flight was set to land, and then vomited. The flight attendants tried to keep this passenger calm, as well as the father of the young girl who had been peed on, so that they could make it to the destination.
Once they arrived, two individuals helped the sick man, while four others took Vietze and turned him over to authorities. He has been issued a federal summons for indecent exposure. This is one of the many reasons to keep your drinking to slightly buzzed and not totally blitzed on a flight back home.
Ironically, this is not “the first time a passenger has peed on another under the influence of alcohol. Back in June, a drunk New Zealand man on a Jetstar flight from Auckland to Singapore peed on the plane’s carpet, a man’s leg and a woman’s scarf after drinking whiskey out of Burger King cups with friends. The man, Michael Aitkin, eventually came forward and apologized profusely to his fellow passengers for his actions.”
