An American Airlines flight was forced to make an emergency landing Wednesday after an unruly passenger – who had downed several “Jack and Cokes” – allegedly exposed himself and urinated on the plane’s aisle, according to a criminal complaint. 

Neil McCarthy, 25, of Oregon, was arrested and charged with indecent exposure in relation to the incident aboard American Eagle flight 3921, which was flying from Chicago to Manchester, New Hampshire, but was forced to divert to Buffalo, New York, at around 1 p.m., according to an American Airlines spokesperson and a criminal complaint.

After the plane touched down, McCarthy was arrested by police, who boarded the plane and escorted him off.

According to the complaint, McCarthy told police during questioning that he likes to drink “Jack and Cokes” and that he had several before boarding his flight in Portland, Oregon, and then several more during his layover in Chicago

McCarthy stated that during the flight, he got up to use the restroom, and when he came back, he was “flicking the bean” due to a medical urination problem.
