A US man flying on All Nippon Airways from Chicago (ORD) to Tokyo (NRT) on Friday was arrested for allegedly peeing on another passenger on the 13-hour flight.

Officials told Japanese media that the 24-year-old man drank four glasses of champagne and a sake on board the plane, and after imbibing, he got up and urinated on a 50-year-old Japanese passenger sitting two rows behind him. The Japanese passenger told law enforcement that he did not previously know the drunk American passenger.

The unidentified American was restrained by the Boeing 777’s cabin crew and arrested upon arrival at Tokyo’s Narita International Airport. The man told police he did not remember the incident.

TPG reached out to ANA for more information but did not hear back by time of publication.

Friday’s incident is the latest in a slew of intoxicated passengers causing disturbances on flights across the world. In June, a Ryanair flight from Dublin (DUB) to Ibiza (IBZ) was diverted to Paris Beauvais–Tillé Airport (BVA) after a group of 20 drunk and unruly passengers caused a disturbance on board. The incident led Ryanair to lobby for bans to morning drinking at airports. The same incident prompted Aer Lingus to declare it would refuse to let inebriated passengers board its planes.
