A Florida man who was arrested for groping a woman on a Southwest Airlines flight Sunday told police that President Donald Trump said it was acceptable to grab a woman by the private parts.
According to KHOU.com, 49-year-old Bruce Michael Alexander was on Southwest Flight 5421 from Houston to Albuquerque, New Mexico, when he allegedly grabbed the right breast of a female passenger sitting in front of him while she slept.
The unidentified woman thought it might have been an accident, but she felt Alexander trying to grab her along the bra line about an hour later and confronted him. The female passenger then asked an attendant to change her seat.
Once the plane landed safely in Albuquerque, police arrested Alexander and confirmed his fingers matched the description provided by the woman. While he didn’t confess to the crime, he told authorities, “the President of the United States says it’s ok to grab women by their private parts.”
Police charged Alexander with abusive sexual contact due to the incident and he could be facing up to two years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
Southwest revealed that customer service supervisors and authorities met the plane when it landed as a result of “a customer’s alleged inappropriate behavior onboard.”
