The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) was alerted Friday after a drunk passenger reportedly urinated on a woman’s luggage during an American Airlines flight from Chicago to Charlotte.

The incident occurred on flight 1344, which arrived in Charlotte, North Carolina, Thursday morning, The Associated Press reported Saturday.

“Due to an intoxicated passenger, American Airlines requested law enforcement meet flight 1344 once it arrived in Charlotte at 12:52 a.m. on Thursday,” American Airlines said to The Daily Caller News Foundation over email Saturday.

Police notified the FBI of the incident Friday, The Charlotte Observer reported.

It is unclear whether there will be criminal charges. (RELATED: 8 Americans Die In Plane Crash That Has China Grounding Planes)
