A 63-year-old man was spotted with his pants around his ankles, furiously masturbating and watching pornography during a Southwest Airlines flight.
Daniel Michael Drinan was seen using the in-flight WiFi network to access pornographic material by other passengers, who alerted flight attendants.
According to a U.S. Attorney’s Office media release, a male flight attendant told Drinan to ‘put his pants back together,’ upon discovering him without them fastened.
The incident happened on a Southwest Airlines Flight between Baltimore-Washington International Airport in Maryland and Denver.
Drinan was taken into custody Saturday night at Denver International Airport on charges of committing lewd, indecent or obscene acts in public aboard an aircraft.
If convicted, Drinan could be sentenced to 90 days in jail and ordered to pay a $250 fine.
