Passenger Kicked Off Delta Flight After Urgent Restroom Trip

Kima Hamilton was traveling solo when the plane he was on taxied to the runway, passengers were told they were third in line and to remain seated. After waiting for half an hour, Hamilton couldn't stand it and had to use the lavatory.
"We weren't taking off. We were still. The plane isn't moving," he said.
A flight attendant told him that they would lose their place in line if he used the restroom, so he went back to his seat. Following another lengthy wait, Hamilton couldn't take and hurried to take care of business.
That's when the plane returned to the gate and Hamilton was approached by two Delta agents.
