United: Bad Toilet Timing Leads To Delay, Arrests

Two passengers were arrested on a United flight from LA to New York after one of them jumped up and ran to the bathroom after being instructed to remain seated by a flight attendant. Apparently the man just needed to use the bathroom — like now.

The AP says that “nothing was found on the plane or in the baggage of the man and his companion,” according to LA police.

The flight was about to take off when the man jumped up and ran to the bathroom. The crew found this behavior suspicious and returned the plane to the gate where the man and another passenger were removed, questioned and searched. No charges are expected to be filed.

When ya gotta go, ya gotta go.
