Ryder Cup golf star Thorbjorn Olesen "urinated in the aisle" and "sexually assaulted passenger" during drunk rage on the BA flight from Nashville to Heathrow

  • Ian Poulter, 43, played with the Danish player Thorbjorn Olesen, 29, in Memphis
  • The couple flew home with British Airways when & # 39; Thorbjorn became aggressive & # 39;
  • Poulter & # 39; tried to calm him down, but Olesen molested a woman while she was sleeping & # 39;

British golf legend Ian Poulter had to intervene when his friend hurled abuse against the flight crew and sexually assaulted a passenger while they were sleeping.

The 43-year-old Poulter and the Danish golfer Thorbjorn Olesen (29) played together last weekend at the WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational in Memphis.

They flew back to London together, but while flying British Airways, Poulter had to reassure his friend after allegedly shouting at fellow travelers and crew members.

In turn, Poulter is said to have fallen asleep while Olesen allegedly molested a first-class woman while she was sleeping before urinating in the hallway.

Police were waiting for him when the flight from Nashville to Heathrow landed Monday morning, The Sun reports.

A witness told the newspaper: “He started to abuse some of the passengers and the crew, and then passed one of the female passengers before taking a leak in the hallway.

& # 39; It was shocking behavior. You might expect it from a low-cost carrier, but not in the prime cabin on BA. & # 39;

A spokesman for the Metropolitan Police confirmed that they arrested a 29-year-old man at Heathrow on Monday.
