Urinating JetBlue Passenger Booted From U.S. Ski Team

So it turns out that the JetBlue passenger who peed on an 11-year-old girl instead of heading to the toilet is a member of the U.S. Ski Team’s development squad. Or at least he was until he went #1 in public.

In a statement to the AP, the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association Executive Vice President of Athletics determined that the skier “is in violation of the USSA code of conduct and team agreement, and has been dismissed from the team.”

The teen says he was drunk and didn’t intend to pee on the little girl. But intoxication doesn’t absolve him of responsibility. He still faces a federal misdemeanor charge of indecent exposure.
