CHARLOTTE, N.C. – A man on a Frontier Airlines flight was arrested last week after passengers said he groped two women and then urinated on a seat in front of him once he was moved.

In a photo taken by a passenger across the aisle, the man, who was not identified, is seen urinating on the back of a seat.

“He was out of his mind. Like he couldn't speak, he was mumbling. This man was extremely intoxicated,” a passenger named Emily told Denver TV station Fox 31.

Another passenger told CBS 4 that the man had been moved to an empty row after two women said that he grabbed them and made sexual advances.

The incident happened about two hours into a flight on Thursday from Denver to Charlotte, North Carolina. A photo shows the man being led away from the gate in handcuffs at Charlotte Douglas International Airport.

Frontier Airlines told reporters that the company was investigating the incident.
