"You don't put your hands on my flight attendant!" Watch as an American Airlines flight crew tackles and restrains a Lexington, Ky., man after a flight to Charlotte. Michael Kerr is accused of intoxication, disruptive behavior and assault.

A passenger peed on another’s luggage during a flight from Chicago to Charlotte, according to a Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department report.

In a statement late Friday to The Charlotte Observer, airline officials said that “due to an intoxicated passenger, American Airlines requested law enforcement meet flight 1344 once it arrived in Charlotte at 12:52 a.m. on Thursday.”

The statement did not divulge further details about the incident, saying only that police would have to be contacted “for any additional details regarding criminal charges.”

According to the police report, the victim is a 28-year-old female who was not hurt. Damages are listed at $100. The Charlotte Observer obtained a copy of the report at police headquarters on Saturday.

The report does not list the sex of the drunken passenger. The report also mentions no charges against the passenger.

CMPD spokeswoman Officer Cindy Wallace told the Observer late Friday that “criminal offenses occurring in flight are investigated by the FBI.”

The FBI was notified of the police report on Friday afternoon, Shelley Lynch, spokeswoman for the Charlotte office of the FBI, told the Observer on Saturday. She said she will check for any updates on Monday.

A belligerent traveler on a flight from St. Croix to Miami started a massive commotion on a Wednesday flight after he asked for more beer, but the flight attendant refused to continue serving him.
