DENVER (AP) — A California man who brought his own vodka on an early morning cross-country flight has been charged with assault for allegedly grabbing two women.
Federal prosecutors say 47-year-old Gregory Meyer of Studio City was arrested early Friday after his JetBlue flight from Burbank to New York was diverted to Denver.
According to court records, Meyer was visibly drunk from vodka he brought on the plane and had also taken an Ambien sleeping pill.
He’s accused of stroking the arm and grabbing the waist of one passenger and grabbing the head of another female passenger sitting in front of him.
Court records didn’t list any lawyer being assigned to represent him yet.
