According to KTVA-TV, United Airlines flight 895 had to make the emergency stop at Ted Stevens International Airport in Anchorage on January 4.

"We received a report of a passenger who had messed up the bathrooms with his own faeces", Anchorage Airport police spokesman Joe Gamache said.

The man is also said to have pulled off his shirt and attempted to flush it mid-flight. The man, who was in his seat and cooperative, was taken off the plane. The cleaning process, however, forced each of the flight's passengers to spend the night in Alaska. According to the airline, the passenger cooperated with the fight crew and was interviewed by authorities upon landing.

"United flight 895, traveling from Chicago to Hong Kong, diverted to Anchorage last night due to a disruptive passenger", according to a statement from the airline on Friday.

In a statement, United said the unlucky passengers were put up in hotels and that the airline would be working to get them to their destinations as soon as possible.

Airport police told the news station that no charges were filed against the passenger, but he was taken to a hospital for a psychiatric evaluation. This is not the first time a flight had made an emergency landing for a weird reason. The Delta flight from NY to Seattle had to land in Montana after the onboard toilets stopped working and passengers waited desperately to use the facilities.
