Sex fiends may have pushed air travel to new low

November 3, 2017 Headline News No Comments Email Email

A man and woman caught committing a sex act while in their seats, after complaints from nearby passengers, have turned out to be strangers who had only just met on the flight.

A 48-year-old woman flying to Nashville via Detroit was apprehended while performing oral sex on a 28-year-old man heading to Miami via Detroit, WDIV-TV Detroit reported. Fellow passengers raised the alarm.

According to an account in USA Today, the pair had just met aboard the Delta flight. The publication quoted a former FBI chief in Detroit, Andy Arena, who said charges over the behaviour were unlikely but “not out of the question”. It would depend on who was sitting around the couple, whether anyone saw the act and how disruptive it was.

Arena told the paper he had “never seen anything like this”.

“It’s criminal stupidity, felony stupidity.”

Legal experts feel it may be hard to prove criminal conduct under the US federal code. That is because the couple’s act neither threatened the safety of the aircraft nor endangered other passengers. The consensus is that the amorous duo may end up being fined USD 800 each.

Delta Air Lines declined to comment.

Such bizarre goings-on are not confined to the air. In Oklahoma last week, a police officer gave chase to a speeding car after he noticed “a nearly naked white male driver” behind the wheel.

On pulling the vehicle over, the officer received two surprises. Firstly, he found the driver was wearing only a thong bikini. Secondly, the driver was covered entirely in Vaseline. A pornographic magazine is alleged to have been perched on the car’s dashboard, according to documents lodged in the District Court of Garfield County, Oklahoma.

Apart from speeding while covered in Vaseline, the suspect is accused of driving on a licence that expired many years previously, the suspect having spent the past 27 years in state prison for narcotics possession, domestic assault, vehicle theft, burglary and escape from custody. Charges may follow, which authorities expect to stick.

At least the suspect wasn’t flying anywhere.
