(CBS) - As if you needed another reason to avoid flying, now you have to beware of airborne masturbators, too.

The FBI busted a Florida man after he took matters into his own hands "to the point of ejaculation" on a United Airlines flight from Spokane to Denver last Thursday, reports The Smoking Gun. The man was arrested at the Denver airport.

Kyle Pearce, 25, was reportedly charged with making an "obscene and indecent exposure of his person" on an aircraft.

The incident was witnessed by an 18-year-old woman who was unluckily seated in the row across from Pearce.

"I heard a noise and looked over and saw his penis," she recalled in a written statement according to The Smoking Gun. She added, "He ejaculated & got some on the seat."

The two passengers sitting directly behind Pearce also reportedly witnessed the event. 18-year-old Grayson Miller said he hit Pearce on the arm with a book causing him to stop and leave for the bathroom, reports the Smoking Gun.

Pearce faces a maximum of 90 days in prison or a year of supervised release if convicted. He can also be fined up to $5,000.
