Masturbating Passenger Diverts Flight From Logan

A flight from Logan to Los Angeles was diverted to Omaha, Nebraska, early Monday after a passenger was caught masturbating before trying to exit the plane mid-flight.

According to Omaha’s KETV, Doug Adams, 26, was touching himself inappropriately during what the station called a “mental breakdown.’’

Film producer Sam Slater, who sat in front of Adams, told Los Angeles’ NBC4 that Adams was wearing a hospital bracelet. Slater’s business partner, Paul Bernon, told NBC4 that Adams used the bathroom, returned to his seat, and argued with a woman seated next to him. After Adams requested she be moved, he began fiddling with something else: the emergency exit door.

Fortunately, a few Boston Police officers happened to be on board to help the flight crew subdue Adams. The flight then had to make an emergency landing in Omaha, where the solo Mile High Club applicant was handcuffed and escorted off the plane, eventually making his way to a hospital for observation.
