The flight landed in Anchorage about 6:30 p.m. and was met by local and federal law enforcement, police said.

Staci Feger-Pellessier, the public affairs specialist and media representative for the Anchorage F.B.I. office, said officials were notified that "an unruly passenger had caused some kind of disturbance" on the plane.

They say the adult male smeared the excrement in a couple of bathrooms, and took off his shirt and tried to stuff it in a toilet.

Although the plane was met by both Federal Bureau of Investigation and airport authorities after landing in Anchorage, the man was not charged with a crime.

The trip got even worse for the rest of the flyers after their poop-covered plane was grounded overnight for maintenance workers to clean it.

In a statement to the Washington Post, United said the flight made the unscheduled stop because of "a disruptive passenger".
