Man Sprays Seatmate With Perfume... You Read That Right
Federal authorities had some questions for two men involved in
an altercation onboard an American Airlines flight Wednesday.
Authorities say one of the men, a 56-year-old Japanese national,
acted suspiciously even before flight 918 left Lima,
Peru, bound for Miami. The man laid down in the aisle at one point,
before asking for a glass of water... which he then proceeded to
pour over his head, before settling back into his seat next to a
jockey in his 20s.
The Miami Herald reports the older man wasn't done, though... as
about two hours into the flight, he then sprayed perfume on the man
seated next to him, according to airline spokeswoman Judy Orihuela.
He evidently felt his seatmate's hygiene was of some concern.
When the younger man took out his iPod -- apparently in an
attempt to ignore his fellow passenger -- the older man then
elbowed the younger man.
"(The older man) thought it (the iPod) was not going to be good
for the plane ... with all the rules on electronics," Orihuela
The flight crew eventually separated the two men, who were not
identified. Both were questioned when the plane landed early
Wednesday morning... but were not arrested.
Is it just us... or does this sound like something you'd see on
