An easyJet flight from Malta to Manchester, UK had a shocking ending when a drunk male passenger disembarked, stripped and urinated on a terminal wall. Police were forced to use a taser after being unable to subdue him.
The 52-year-old man, who was unidentified, reportedly become drunk and verbally abusive during the flight, which led pilots to ask for police assistance upon landing. After exiting the plane, the man stripped down to his underwear and pointed toward the pilot. He then took off his underwear and was slapped by his girlfriend. Although he got dressed before going into the terminal, he remained belligerent and uncooperative, and police used a “dry tase” to calm him down and arrest him.
A spokesperson for easyJet explained the situation to the media and emphasized the security and safety of passengers is the airline’s highest priority, and the incident of “disruptive behavior” was being taken very seriously.
The Manchester situation was one of two incidents that have recently beleagured easyJet. A recent flight from Malaga, Spain to Bristol, UK took off without 29 of its passengers, leaving them stranded without baggage. The airline admitted it did not realize the plane had departed short of passengers.
