DENVER (CBS4) – Frontier Airlines says they are aware of a recent situation aboard a flight from Denver to South Carolina in which a passenger allegedly urinated on the passenger’s seat in front of him.
According to another passenger on the flight, the man urinated on the seat in front of hers after being kicked out of his previous seat for inappropriate behavior.
The passenger told CBS4’s Dillon Thomas she was sitting in the same row as the man, across the aisle, when he unbuckled his seat belt and urinated on the back of the chair.
The woman said the male passenger was moved to the row she was in after he allegedly verbally and physically assaulted two other women near his previous seat. She also said the man allegedly touched one sleeping female passenger and later asked another woman about her sexual and marital life.
The passenger said she was disappointed with the way the airline handled the incident, and was discouraged when Frontier flight attendants allegedly placed the suspect next to her. She said one flight attendant warned her of his previous actions, and told her to monitor his status. It was then when the passenger photographed the suspect urinating on the seat.

In a statement to CBS4’s Dillon Thomas, Frontier Airlines spokesman Richard Oliver said “The safety and security of our passengers is our top priority at Frontier. We have been made aware of this situation and are working with the appropriate authorities.”
The woman said the suspect was arrested at the gate in Charleston approximately 30 minutes later.
She and two other women filled out statements for law enforcement.
The passenger claimed the airline provided her an outdated complaint card, which provided disconnected phone numbers. When she called a booking agent, the woman said she was told the airline would refund her checked baggage fee and would give her a $200 voucher.
