Man 'smearing feces' redirects flight to Alaska

Man 'smearing feces' redirects flight to Alaska

The United Airlines website indicated that Flight 895 was diverted to Anchorage, and the departure to Hong Kong was cancelled due to "operational difficulties".

The man made no threats and did not try to interfere with the flight crew, Gamache said, adding that no charges have been filed. Officials added that the unnamed passenger carried out the stunt in more than one of the flight's restrooms before taking his shirt off and trying to clog a toilet.

The plane made its emergency landing in Anchorage just before 6:30 p.m. local time, according to data from FlightAware, a live flight tracking website.

According to the airlines, "United flight 895, traveling from Chicago to Hong Kong, diverted to Anchorage last night due to a disruptive passenger". The man, who was in his seat and cooperative, was taken off the plane.

Airport Operations said the Boeing 777 was grounded overnight for maintenance. Passengers on the plane were put up in hotels, and the airline said it was working to get them to their final destination.

The man was interviewed by Federal Bureau of Investigation agents and airport police after the incident, according to KTVA.
