When a woman gropes another woman in Las Vegas, they call it Tuesday. When it happens on the flight back home from Sin City, they call it third-degree sexual abuse.
According to The Smoking Gun, 26-year-old Heidi McKinney found that out the hard way Sunday night when she reportedly “touched the breasts and genitals of a woman” without consent on their Alaska Airlines flight from Vegas to Portland.
Airline staff alerted police when the plane landed in Portland, and after speaking with the “victim,” they decided to book McKinney into the Multnomah County jail for sex abuse. But prosecutors in Oregon have said they won’t “pursue a criminal case” against her because the incident took place while the plane was in the air, and that’s something federal prosecutors usually handle.
In the meantime, I’ll just hope she sits next to me on her next flight.
