The 29-year-old was described as being “slightly intoxicated” by friend and fellow pro golfer Ian Poulter, who said he attempted to calm Olesen down before eventually falling asleep.

“He started abusing some of the passengers and crew and then made a pass at one of the female passengers before taking a leak in the aisle,” a witness told The Sun, referring to Olesen. “It was shocking behavior. You would expect it maybe on a budget airline but not in the first-class cabin on [British Airways].”

Olesen was met by Metropolitan Police at London Heathrow Airport Monday and arrested on charges of suspicion of sexual assault, being intoxicated aboard an aircraft and failing to comply with cabin crew orders.

He was later “released under investigation,” authorities confirmed.

“This sort of behavior will not be tolerated and the appropriate action will always be taken,” British Airways said in a statement.

Olesen finished 27th at the WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational in Memphis last weekend and tweeted out that he was disappointed before boarding his flight home to London.

Surprisingly, Olesen wasn’t the only celebrity to run into trouble on a British Airways flight this week as rapper Busta Rhymes was removed from his flight from New York City to London Tuesday morning after allegedly verbally attacking a woman who had placed her luggage in his area.
