August 27th, 1989: Izzy Arrested After Airborne Urination Mishap

During a flight from Los Angeles to Indianapolis, rhythm guitarist Izzy Stradlin urinated in the plane's galley. "I was drunk in the middle of this bunch of senior citizen types. I was smoking, and the stewardess came over. I told her to fuck herself," Izzy said. "I was drinking so much I had to take a piss. The people in the bathroom … man, it seemed like I waited an hour. So I pissed in the trash can instead." Police welcomed Izzy in Phoenix, arresting him on charges of public disturbance for smoking in a non-smoking section, making obscene gestures to passengers and verbally abusing a stewardess. "Next thing I know we've landed, I'm walking out and I see 10 policemen. … And I remember thinking: 'Uh-oh! I think I fucked up again.'"
