A drunken U.S. Ski Team member was arrested for urinating on a sleeping 11 year-old girl aboard an airline flight and, afterwards, refused to apologize for the nasty mid-flight act. Robert "Sandy" Vietze, 18, was reportedly soused when he soiled the innocent girl while her father left her for a short time to do something this idiot didn't--use the restroom.
According to the New York Post, Vietze, who is among the 75 most elite skiers in the U.S., was on a JetBlue red-eye from Portland, Ore. to JFK in New York Wednesday when the incident took place. He was returning to his Vermont home after a weeklong training camp with the U.S. Ski Team at Mount Hood in Oregon.
Right after takeoff, Vietze, 18, stumbled from his seat, five rows behind the girl, and relieved himself on the napping child.
"I was drunk, and I did not realize I was pissing on her leg," the un-remorseful Vietze told authorities.
Yesterday, the 6-foot-4 Vietze was bumped from the ski team's developmental roster. Officials would not comment publicly.
The unbelievably stupid action may have just cost this brat his chance to compete in the 2014 Winter Games in Russia. Good riddance.
The child's cancer-stricken father, who was flying with another daughter, said they were on a trip to see the girl's grandmother on Long Island. He left his 11 year-old daughter alone while he and his other daughter were in the restrooms.
The horrified dad returned to his seat and caught Vietze in mid-stream.
"F--- that kid. I don't want him near my family," he yelled.
Flight attendants had to separate the two men.
Vietze claims he downed eight alcoholic beverages before boarding the flight. He was issued a federal summons for indecent exposure, but federal prosecutors decided later to drop the charges, according to Port Authority police.
The father has refused to allow his daughter to be interviewed, thus making it hard for the cops to press charges against the moron. They traumatized family took in a Yankee game to help them recover from the incident.
Vietze, on the other hand, returned home to unbelieving neighbors.
Last year, after Vietze was invited to join the ski team, he became the toast of the Green Mountain Valley School, which calls itself "a world-class ski academy."
"He's a very nice boy, one of the nicest, most respectable young people I've ever met," a neighbor, Colin Seaman told the Post. "It would be very hard for me to believe this ever happened."
"We have no comment," snarled The urinator's mother, Abigail, while she helped unload his ski equipment from a car.
Athletes and stupid antics seem to go hand-in-hand these days but this is the sickest episode I can remember in a long time.
