We’ve read our fair share of nasty airplane stories — but very rarely (read: never) do they involve other people getting peed on.
27-year-old Jeff Rubin spent about 5 hours in jail Friday after he reportedly urinated on several passengers right before landing at Portland International Airport.
Officers responded to the C-concourse to meet JetBlue Flight 47 from Anchorage after getting reports from the airline that a man had urinated on passengers, seats and luggage.
When the officers boarded the aircraft, they found Rubin “slumped over asleep in his seat,” according to the police report.
Numerous airline employees and passengers told police that Rubin had been sleeping for the majority of the flight. About 30 minutes before landing, “he stood up and began urinating through the crack of the seat onto the passengers seated in front of him,” the report states.
At some point, Rubin lost his balance and he fell backwards and “urinate(d) upwards which got
the passengers and seats next to him as well as some other passengers’ personal belongings,” the report states.
Rubin was booked into the Multnomah County Detention Center at 5:10 a.m. on Friday, records show.
He has been charged with one count each of second-degree criminal mischief and offensive littering.
He was released on his own recognizance. Rubin, according to court records, lives in Gresham, Ore.
We’d be pissed on AND pissed OFF if we were on that plane.
