It took six security guards to bring down Steve Cho at Thailand's Phuket International Airport in January 2018. The 27-year-old New York native terrified an entire airport when he rushed through the airport naked, smashing airport shop goods and flinging his own feces at the staff and other travelers. The reason for Cho's erratic behavior? Cho told police he had taken "too many sex drugs" and it was later revealed that too many Viagra pills may have been the cause of the outburst. Cho underwent psychiatric evaluation after his arrest. 

Cho was deeply remorseful for his actions, offering to pay any damages and apologizing profusely for his behavior.

United Plane Forced To Land After Man Desecrates Bathroom

While the airline initially reported the emergency landing was due to "a disruptive passenger," United could not get around the sordid reason a flight from Chicago to Hong Kong ended up grounded in Alaska. Police officials told reporters a passenger had "dirtied" some bathrooms on the flight, but disgusting details revealed that was a gross understatement. The man reportedly smeared his ~#2~ all over the plane's bathrooms and tried to flush his shirt down the toilet. The smell and sight was so disgusting, it warranted an unplanned touchdown in Anchorage, where the plane was held overnight for maintenance.

The man was immediately handed over to authorities upon landing, and was reportedly cooperative. In addition to his meeting with airport officials and police officers, the FBI has launched an investigation. It is unclear what the man's motivations were, but hopefully a thorough investigation will yield some answers.
