A man on a Southwest flight was arrested after reportedly Airdropping a photo of himself receiving oral sex, to random passengers on Saturday.
A viral TikTok video showed the man – identified as Larry – as he was called out by passengers and spoken to by a member of the flight crew.
In the video, Larry confesses and apologizes to the crew member, and says he was ‘just having some fun.’
In a follow-up video, the poster said that Larry continued to look at the image he sent after he was told off. She said that Larry was escorted off the plane, and that she and a few other passengers talked to investigators from the FBI.
The incident occurred on a flight from Detroit to Denver, reps from Southwest confirmed in a statement to The New York Post. The airline said Larry was arrested upon arrival.
Footage from the incident posted to TikTok shows the man – who identifies himself as Larry (above) – telling a crew member he was ‘just having some fun’
A representative for Southwest confirmed that the incident occurred, and that Larry was escorted from the flight and arrested upon arrival
‘Meet Larry, who just airdropped a whole flight photos of his peepee,’ a caption on the video read.
The TikTok showed a middle aged man with sparse white hair and dark framed glasses, sitting in an aisle seat with an iPad propped up on his tray as a female flight attendant approached him.
‘This man is Airdropping inappropriate photos, I don’t think we should look at it,’ the woman filming told the attendant, pointing at the man.
The flight attendant asked the man if he did it, and if he is Larry, which he confirmed.
‘Why are you doing that?’ she asked.
‘Just having a little fun,’ he responded.
‘It’s sexual harassment, mainly, disgusting, it is assault,’ the woman filming then said.
‘My apologies,’ Larry said in response.
‘So, that’s going to be an issue,’ the flight attended then said before the video cuts off.
The woman who filmed the incident (above) said in a follow-up video that Larry continued to view the explicit image after he had been told off by crew members
In a follow up video, the woman who filmed the incident explained that she received a request for an airdrop from ‘Larry’s iPad,’ and that when she accepted it, the explicit photo of Larry appeared.
She said that she immediately noticed that the man across the aisle from her had his iPad open, and was selecting available devices to send AirDrops to.
The woman asked the man if he had sent the photo, and he said he did, that he’d done it on purpose, and that he had sent it to other people.
She said she then called the flight attendant and filmed the altercation.
The woman noted that there were several children sitting near Larry, including one who she estimated to be about seven years-old in the seat behind him.
After the telling-off seen in her video, the woman said that Larry continued to view the photo on his iPad.
She said that when she spoke to the FBI upon arrival, they told her they were going to try to book him for the weekend.
‘We can confirm this unfortunate incident occurred on a recent flight from Detroit to Denver,’ a representative for Southwest Airlines told The Post.
‘Our Flight Attendants immediately addressed the situation and the Crew requested local law enforcement officers meet the flight upon arrival, which they did and subsequently apprehended the individual responsible.’
‘Southwest Airlines maintains zero tolerance for this obscene and unacceptable behavior, and we offer our sincere apologies to the other Customers onboard.’
No information has been made available yet about the incident by law enforcement.
