An 18 year old man named Robert “Sandy” Vietze of Warren, Vermont has been charged with indecent exposure after urinating on a young girl aboard a red eye Jet Blue flight bound for JFK.
The girl’s father was coming back from the bathroom aboard the plane at 2:30am when he found Vietze urinating on his daughter.
A Port Authority Police Department detective said Vietze had “just” five or six beers and two rum and cola cocktails before getting on the plane. Vietze then said he passed out on the plane and awoke to find the daughter’s father yelling at him.
The father described Vietze as “out of it.”
Vietze had been selected to be on the U.S. ski team’s development squad after excelling as an alpine skier at the Green Mountain Valley School, a top ski academy and high school in Waitsfield, Vermont where tuition is $42,384 per year.
“Based on the information we have, Sandy Vietze is in violation of the USSA code of conduct and team agreement, and has been dismissed from the team,” U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association Executive Vice President of Athletics Luke Bodensteiner said in an email sent to The Associated Press on Friday.
Vietze could have qualified to compete in the 2014 Olympic Winter games in Russia, but now those dreams appear to have been axed.
“I was drunk, and I did not realize I was pissing on her leg,” the 6-foot-4, 195-pound Vietze later told cops, according to law-enforcement sources.
“F- -k that kid. I don’t want him near my family!” the girl’s father yelled when he told reporters he would not allow his traumatized daughter to testify in court against Vietze, likely saving Vietze from criminal charges.
The young girl reportedly tried to fight off Vietze during the act while yelling and screaming.
The New York Port Authority now appears to have dropped the charges against Vietze. “We have no comment, nothing to say,” snapped Vietze’s mother Abigail when reporters asked her to comment on her son’s actions.
