A man who was found masturbating on a Virgin America flight caused panic as he tried to open a door mid flight.

The flight from Boston to Los Angeles made an emergency landing on Monday morning, in Nebraska after an American passenger, named as Doug Adams, was caught masturbating according to police reports, which were acquired by NBC.

Adams was reportedly wearing a hospital bracelet and after an argument with a fellow passenger, he attempted to leave the aircraft.

Another passenger Sam Slater, who filmed the incident said after returning from the toilet the unruly passenger had an argument with a woman next to him. He then said that Adams asked a flight attendant to move the woman away from him.

‘He at that point was fidgeting and began to remove the plastic covering from the emergency exit door and tried to pull open the door.
