Gérard Depardieu won't wait for the loo; actor thrown off Air France plane after urinating on floor
Oscar-nominated actor Gérard Depardieu relieved himself on the floor of an Air France flight from Paris to Dublin Tuesday (Aug. 16) according to French radio station Europe 1.
Air France confirmed the incident in a statement saying, "Flight AF 5010 was delayed because of an incident involving a passenger who refused to remain seated. He was disembarked and the flight took off from Charles de Gaulle ... an hour and 15 minutes late ... he did indeed urinate in the aircraft."
Witnesses said the Frenchman chose to ignore instructions from the flight crew to hold it for another 15 minutes until the plane was in the air. It was at that point the Depardieu, 62, took care of business. The plane was forced to return to the terminal where the actor and his travel partners were booted from the plane.
The "Green Card" star was not arrested, and it remains unclear whether he will face any criminal charges.
