DENVER (KDVR/CNN) – When Frontier Airlines Flight 864 left Denver bound for Charleston, SC, it started out like any other flight.

By the time it landed, passengers described it as the flight from hell.

“I got a seat on the back of the plane where I could just lay down and fall asleep,” a passenger named Emily from Los Angeles said.

About two hours into the flight, she said she woke up in a panic.

“I hear a woman scream, ‘If this man f***ing touches me one more time, I’ll f***ing kill him,’” she said.

A drunk male passenger grabbed the woman he was seated next to, Emily said.

“She said that he ordered two double shots of vodka, so four drinks while they were sitting there,” according to Emily. “He was out of his mind. Like he couldn’t speak, he was mumbling. This man was extremely intoxicated.”

The flight crew reportedly moved the man to the back of the plane where there was an empty row. It was across the aisle from Emily’s seat.

She said the flight crew warned her about the man.

“They bring the man to the back across from me so they said you might want to get up just in case he tries to touch you,” Emily said.

She said she took out her phone to take a picture of the man to show her girlfriends. That's when she said the flight went from bad to worse.

“While I have my phone out trying to take a discreet photo, he starts to pee and urinate on the seat in front of him,” she said.

Emily caught that on her phone too.

“And I scream, ‘He’s f***ing peeing. He’s peeing. Oh my god,’’ she said. “And the flight attendant doesn’t even acknowledge him at first. Acknowledges me and says, ‘You need to calm down and stop cursing.’”

Emily said she was moved to the front of the plane, her bag fees were waived and she was a given a $200 voucher to use on future travel.

But she said she believes the airline needed to do more to prevent the unruly passenger from acting out.

“I think they handled it extremely poorly,” Emily said. “Someone should have sat with him.”

After the flight was over, Emily captured another photo. It appears to be the same man in handcuffs being walked through the airport by Police.
