    Not good at all. Surprised that being drunk on an airplane is illegal but the other charges, if true, deserve punishment.

    Poults had to calm him down, not good, Thor is too old for that. Somethings wrong.

    But it will blow over. No one remember DJ’s useage or the tiger mugshot for instance. Guess some of the oldtimers got careless witn alcohol as well but I have heard of nada.

    The way the media frame things by using specific phrases it can often seem a lot worse than it is. Let's hope for everyone its not as bad as reported.

    When you commit a crime on on aeroplane, with what country’s law are you charged? For sure, if your hands did unlegal things towards a woman on a domestic scandinavian flight you would get charged.
    Guy’s an absolute hunk, obviously not gay and still the only single man on the RC team. Sounds like he has things to sort out.

    hope he is treated as any other ordinary citizen would be... maximum punishment...this is sickening behaviour that has been put up to drunkenness and excused.

    One quote I have seen is "He started abusing some of the passengers and crew and then made a pass at one of the female passengers before taking a leak in the aisle. It was shocking behaviour. You would expect it maybe on a budget airline but not in the first class cabin on BA"

    Hard to frame pissing in the aisle any other way.

    LOL... Yeah not like there's a grey area there.

    article says "sexual assault", while a witness says "made a pass" ... that said, hope he gets punished severely by the authorities and tour ... zero reason for that to happen ...

    Clearly not what I'm referring to. It's the use of "sexual assault", there are different descriptions of this aspect of the incident in different articles. Some stated he "made a pass" as opposed to the assault phrasing.

    This is true. We may not know all the facts, but 'the media' weren't responsible for him being arrested. Sounds like he might want to take a sabbatical from alcohol and do a reassessment of where he is in life. Not a good look, to put it mildly.

    Looks like he's gone Full Send on the flight home. Gotta keep it quiet when you're not flying private.

    Yep. Peeing in the aisle is exposure and that can be classified as sexual assault, depending on location of offense. "Sexual assault" can go way beyond the commonly-held idea of rape/molestation/etc.

    Hopefully this didn’t happen, but the Independent article isn’t quite as gray in their statement.

    “The 29-year-old, a Ryder Cup golfer and current world No 62, allegedly molested the woman on a British Airways flight from Memphis to Heathrow while she was sleeping in first class, as well as being accused of urinating in the aisle of the aeroplane.”

    Exactly what I thought of too. Ernie Els is now the first name in high altitude shenanigans IMO.

    We need to find out if he asked the rules official for "relief" in the isle!!............... bet ya a million bucks will be blamed on sleeping pills and a quiet scotch or 2

    The ensuing ban from British Airways is going to be a real bummer for him.

    I was thinking it would be an 'anomalous reaction to prescription medication and/or stress due to unresolved personal issues' Either way, hope he takes care of himself.

    Unfortunate event for all involved. Hope he didn’t actually grope any passengers. If he did, let him be prosecuted to the full extent.

    Wouldn’t be surprised to see a video of this event come out in the coming days.
