An 18-year old man who urinated on an 11-year old girl during a Jet Blue flight last week has been kicked off the U.S. Ski Team.
The U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association emailed a statement to the Associated Press Friday announcing that Robert "Sandy" Vietze had been dismissed from the team, NPR reported.
18-year-old Vietze of South Warren, Vt., was on a red-eye flight from Portland, Ore., to JFK Wednesday, returning from a weeklong training camp with the US Ski Team at Mount Hood in Oregon, when he relieved himself on a young female passenger shortly after takeoff.
Ironically, the girl's travel companions, her sister and her father, were both using the restroom facilities at the time.
When the girl's father -- who is a Stage 4 cancer patient -- caught Vietze midstream, he started screaming:
"F--- that kid! I don't want him near my family!" an unidentified fellow passenger told the Post.
"I was drunk, and I did not realize I was pissing on her leg," the 6-foot-4, 195-pound Vietze later told law enforcement, The New York Post reported.
Later on the same flight, another passenger complained of chest pains and vomited on himself.
Vietze was met by four port authority cops at the JFK gate at around 6:30 am. Wednesday and was issued a federal summons for indecent exposure.
A spokeswoman for the Port Authority Police initially told the AP that federal prosecutors had decided not to pursue charges. However, NPR reported that a spokesman for the U.S. Attorney's office says the case is still pending.
