Flight to Hong Kong diverted to Anchorage

Staci Feger-Pellessier, the public affairs specialist and media representative for the Anchorage F.B.I. office, said officials were notified that "an unruly passenger had caused some kind of disturbance" on the plane.

A United Airlines flight was diverted to Anchorage on Thursday night after a passenger smeared the inside of the cabin with his own feces.

The unidentified man is said to have smeared his excrement all over walls of the bathroom and even removed his shirt in an attempt to clog up one of the toilets, as reported by New York Post.

"United flight 895, traveling from Chicago to Hong Kong, diverted to Anchorage last night due to a disruptive passenger", according to a statement from the airline on Friday.

As the plane made its unplanned landing in Alaska, the man cooperated with the flight crew and sat in his seat, KTVA reports.

In a statement, United said the unlucky passengers were put up in hotels and that the airline would be working to get them to their destinations as soon as possible.

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.

The passenger was met by Federal Bureau of Investigation agents and airport police as he was removed from the plane. He was taken to the Providence Hospital to undergo a psychological evaluation and the airlines are yet to press any charges against him.
