French actor Gerard Depardieu was escorted off an Air France plane Tuesday for urinating in the aisle of his flight.
Depardieu's flight from Paris to Dublin was reportedly delayed on the tarmac, and after asking to use the restroom, the 62-year-old actor was told he couldn't use the facility until the plane had taken off.
Air France Tweeted the following about the incident:
- "As you may have seen on the news, we are busy mopping the floor of one of our planes this morning. We'd also like to remind all passengers that our planes are fully equipped with toilet facilities."
Various eyewitnesses claim the actor appeared to have been drinking.
A spokesperson added, "I will only confirm that he, in effect, urinated in the plane." No word on whether Depardieu will face charges.
Depardieu's reps have issued no comment.
Do you think Gerard should face charges?
