We’ve all been there: After waiting in line to pass through security at the airport, you’ve had to toss a brand new water bottle in your bag. Instead of handing her cognac over to TSA officials, one woman in China decided to respond in the most epic way: chugging the entire bottle.
At Bejing Capital International Airport, the woman, whose last name is Zhao, was barred from taking her $189 bottle of Remy Martin XO Excellence on her flight to Wenzhou. So, in a truly collegiate fashion—you know back when tossing even a swig of boxed wine or half-pour of vodka was blasphemy—popped the cap and proceeded to drink the entire thing. Yes, all at once!
While this is probably the most badass thing we’ve ever heard of happening at airport security, it didn’t bode well for our heroine. Instead, it’s not shocking that she was considered too buzzed to fly. She apparently then started shouting incoherently at airport officials before falling down drunk at the terminal.
A police officer told the South China Morning Post that “she was so drunk, she couldn’t even stand up by herself,” which is why authorities brought her to a room via wheelchair “so she could rest.”
Once there, she was given medical care around midday and wasn’t released by police to her family until she sobered up at about 7 p.m. Damn, that’s gotta be one hell of a hangover.
