The teenager who notoriously peed on a young sleeping girl during a JeBlue flight may lose his dream of competing in the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi.
18-year-old Robert "Sandy" Vietze, of Warren, Vt. was returning to Vermont from an Oregon training camp with the U.S. Ski Team when he reportedly stumbled five rows behind him and began peeing on an eleven-year-old girl.
A Port Authority Police Department detective wrote in court documents that Vietze told him he had consumed five or six beers and two rum and cola cocktails before boarding the flight. Vietze claimed to have passed out in his seat and awoke to find himself being yelled at by the father of the girl.
Ironically, the girl's travel companions, her sister and her father, were both using the restroom facilities at the time.
When the unidentified girl's father caught Vietze midstream, he started screaming:
"F--- that kid! I don't want him near my family!" an unidentified fellow passenger told the New York Post.
Vietze was escorted away by flight attendants who then cleaned off the girl with soap from the restroom facilities.
JetBlue declined to comment on the incident further, citing an internal investigation.
Vietze was met by four port authority cops at the JFK gate and issued a federal summons for indecent exposure.
He later apologized saying:
"I was drunk, and I did not realize I was pissing on her leg."
It seems that meager apology was not enough to keep him on the U.S. Ski Team.
His behavior on the red-eye flight from Portland, Ore. to New York's JFK International Airport has resulted in his dismissal from the team's development squad.
"Based on the information we have, Sandy Vietze is in violation of the USSA code of conduct and team agreement, and has been dismissed from the team," U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association (USSA) Executive Vice President of Athletics Luke Bodensteiner said in an email sent to The Associated Press on Friday.
Vietze was nominated to the Olympic development team earlier this year. The Associated Press reports that he was an all-star skier at the prestigious Green Mountain Valley School where tuition runs as much as $42,384 a year.
Vietze is considered one of the 75 best skiers in the nation.
