Doctor flying Southwest, jailed for trying to use the bathroom

An Indian urologist on a diuretic tries to use the restroom in-flight. He couldn’t because the pilot was using it, and subsequently was arrested and jailed overnight.

He had to pay a $2500 fine and plead guilty for a quick resolution.

To rub salt in the wounds, he has yet to receive an apology from Southwest.

Did race play a role?
