Thorbjorn Olesen arrested after being accused of sexual assault, urinating in aisle on a transatlantic flight

Published

on

According to a report from The Sun, European Tour star Thorbjorn Olesen was arrested before being released this week on suspicion of sexual assault during a transatlantic flight.

Per the report, Olesen allegedly hurled abuse at passengers and crew on the flight before being calmed by fellow golfer Ian Poulter and then molested a woman while Poulter slept.

The Dane is also accused of urinating in the first-class aisle of the plane, and it is believed that police were waiting for Olesen when his BA flight from Nashville, Tennessee, landed at Heathrow on Monday,

A witness speaking on the incident told The Sun

 “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.’’

Poulter’s agent Paul Dunkley stated that the Englishman assisted in calming down a “slightly intoxicated” passenger and that “he then went to sleep and the first he knew of anything else was when the police were waiting at Heathrow.

The Met Police confirmed that a 29-year-old man had been arrested on suspicion of sexual assault, being drunk on board an aircraft and failing to comply with the orders of cabin crew, before being “released under investigation.”

    I want to hear all of the facts of this story. Sometimes first reports might not have all the details from both sides, so I am gonna wait before passing judgement. Of course he might have indeed just went bananas for no reason, but I don’t know for sure…

    A “budget airline?” WTH is that? Furthermore, what airline tolerates, allows, and excuses idiotic behavior? Dumbest thing I have ever heard, next to a PGA Tour member acting like Eldrick! I mean, this neanderthal is a First Class clown! Drunk, ignorant, belligerent, entitled, arrogant, and offensive! Well done Thorby, well done!

    He must have been drunk out of his skull to be that big of an Ass. From now on he should fly with the trash on a Budget Airlines where he can molest females, and most of all Pee in the aisle. I always fly Budget so I can do those things with applause from the other trash flying Budget. What a bunch of over important people flying First these snobs are.

    It is a sad day for Oleson and he should be suspended for the rest of the season and put on probation after this fiasco. Too bad he doesn’t appreciate what he has/had. Good Day Sir!!!! and get some help.

    Sadly, this will all end in a slap on the wrist and a fine. Nothing will be learned from his bad behavior.

    Looks/acts like a guy with a screw loose. I always thought that. All it takes is one drink too many and “him” comes out to play.

    “You would expect it maybe on a budget airline but not in the first-class cabin on BA.”??? Seriously??? That witness may have set a new superiority complex bar. I’d much rather take my chances flying next to Olesen than that person.

    What are you doing, Thunder Bear? Never took him as a closet DB until reading who was flying with. Birds of a feather, I guess.

    In response to sexual assault and urinating in the aisle the witness was quoted as saying “you would expect it maybe on a budget airline.” So they think that people who aren’t wealthy molest flight attendants and piss where they’re not supposed to? They comment is more shocking than Olesen’s behavior.
