A Virgin Airlines flight from Boston to L.A. had to be diverted to Nebraska because a passenger was causing a disturbance. What disturbance was that? He was, according to reports, furiously masturbating on the plane.
The FAA claims the plane was diverted due to a medical emergency. The police report, on the other hand, says that this twenty-six-year-old man was “masturbating in flight and later tried to open an exit door.” (Well, at least this is more worth diverting for than a fight over legroom.)
Witnesses on the plane say this individual was wearing a hospital bracelet and when he emerged from the bathroom, he started shouting with a woman before attempting to pull the emergency exit door. Police officers detained him, and when they landed in Nebraska, he was taken to the hospital.
And in case you’re wondering, no, this is not the first time someone’s been caught masturbating on an airplane.
