Pro Golfer Pees on the Floor in First Class

Pro Golfer Pees on the Floor in First Class

Pro golfer Thorbjorn Oleson was arrested earlier this week over allegations that he sexually assaulted a passenger and was verbally abusive toward staff and other passengers on a recent British Airways flight from Nashville to London. He was said to be drunk at the time of the incident and eventually released.

Professional golfer Thorbjorn Oleson was arrested earlier this week over allegations that he sexually assaulted a female traveler, shouted verbal abuse at other passengers and then urinated in the aisle of the first-class section of a London-bound British Airways (BA) flight from Nashville, The Sun reports.

According to an unidentified eyewitness, “He started abusing some of the passengers and crew and then made a pass at one of the female passengers before taking a leak in the aisle. It was shocking behavior. You would expect it maybe on a budget airline but not in the first-class cabin on BA.

The Danish golfer had been in Tennessee as a participant in a golf tournament.

The outlet reports that fellow golfer Ian Poulter attempted to calm the situation after Oleson began shouting at both crew and passengers.

Local police met the plane at London Heathrow Airport (LHR) and Oleson was arrested but later released. According to the outlet, Oleson had been charged with, “…suspicion of sexual assault, being drunk on board an aircraft and failing to comply with the orders of cabin crew.

In a statement, BA said, “This sort of behavior will not be tolerated.”

    Seems to me that it was tolerated.

    If he was black he would have been shot on the spot—White privilege.

    Is being drunk aboard an aircraft against the law?

    I blame the airlines and airports for 90% of these all-to-frequent occurrences.

    There should be NO ALCOHOL after Security.

    Gate agents should be trained to spot potential trouble and deny boarding to anyone considered a potential problem. From body ordor to alcohol on the breath, these passengers should politely be taken out of line.

    BA Should never have served this man!

    Perhaps he should have flown on Saudia?

    No, you really wouldn’t expect it on a budget airline.

    Stupid snob.

    He allegedly sexually assaulted a woman and your headline is about him peeing on the floor? Seems like sexual assault might be just a tiny bit more serious than peeing on the floor, no?
