Man arrested for groping woman on flight says 'President says it's OK to grab women's private parts'.

A Florida man is facing a federal sexual assault charge after he was accused of groping a woman on a flight from Texas to New Mexico.

According to the complaint, the woman fell asleep on a Southwest flight and woke up to a man, sitting in the row behind her, lifting up her sweater and touching her skin around her bra line.

The woman assumed the incident was an accident – but 30 minutes later, she felt that same man grab her arm and again, grab her right side around her ribs and bra line.

At that point, the woman stood up, turned around and confronted the man, later identified as Bruce Michael Alexander, and asked him why he thought it was OK to touch her and demanded that he stop.

According to the complaint, after Alexander was placed under arrest, he asked police what the sentence was for the charge he was being arrested for.

Later, in the police vehicle, Alexander told officers that the president of the United States "says it's OK to grab women by their private parts.". »
