Published on 18 Jul 2019 / In News & Politics

A 30-year-old Spirit Airlines passenger on a flight from Detroit to New Orleans recently got himself banned for life after deciding to take a smoke break in the plane's bathroom.

An attendant on Flight NK 985 told authorities that she saw him take a drag from an e-cigarette and exhale into a bag.

The St. Petersburg, Florida, resident then got up and headed for the restroom, according to a report filed with the Jefferson Parish Sheriff's office.

While he was in the bathroom, the plane's smoke alarm went off.

When a deputy met the plane at Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport, the unidentified passenger denied smoking in the restroom, CNN reports.

He told a deputy he didn't know smoking was prohibited on flights.

The passenger was not arrested but he may never again fly with Spirit.

The deputy's report said the company banned him for life.
