Northwest Airlines Employee Accused of Onboard Sexual Assault

An off-duty Northwest Airlines employee was accused of sexual assault after a woman said that he sat next to her on an overnight flight, lifted up her shirt and touched himself.  And not in a good way.  The employee was taken into FBI custody after the flight landed, and he’s been suspended from his job.

FOLLOW UP: Apparently the employee not only touched himself, he, uh, finished himself off on the woman he was sitting next to.  When Northwest reports higher load factors next month, this is NOT what they’re talking about (allow me to apologize for that in advance)…

  1. Higher load factors? Bada bing.

    But somehow I prefer the consensual airplane sex stories better. Those are entertaining in a guilty, voyeuristic way. This story is just gross.

  2. I don’t make the news, I just report it :)
