A plane passenger, Jinu Abraham, said to be drunk on a flight from India to Birmingham, UK, pulled down his trousers and urinated in the aisle of the plane. Abraham, 39, was said to have been aggressive towards the cabin crew and needed to be restrained until the plane landed at its destination. He was arrested on landing at the airport. He told the Magistrate court that he had been on medication which heightened the effect of the alcohol. He also said he had taken two whiskeys and insisted he could not remember anything he did. In company of his 10-year-old son, he was said to have flashed his buttocks to the rest of the passengers while he urinated on the seat and aisle of the plane. He was fined £300 at Birmingham Magistrates’ Court as well as being ordered to pay £500 compensation and £185 costs.
Alan Newport, defending, said Abraham had been on medication after one of his children died at birth and his wife had already returned from India on another flight with their 15-month-old child.
