Well it’s not quite pooping on the beverage cart, but an American Airlines passenger on a flight from LAX to JFK caused the plane to make an emergency landing in Kansas City because she would not stop belting out Whitney Houston tunes at top volume.

According to Gawker, there was thankfully an air marshal on board the craft that had gone through rigorous training to face difficult situations such as this. The woman was subdued and can be seen singing “I Will Always Love You” as she is escorted off the plane.
