RALEIGH, N.C., Nov. 14 (UPI) -- A California couple who repeatedly refused requests to stop engaging in foreplay on a flight to Raleigh, N.C., faces federal interference charges.
The incident aboard a Southwest Airlines flight from Los Angeles to Raleigh with a stop in Phoenix happened on Sept. 15, when passengers complained about the couple groping, kissing passionately and contorting into questionable positions in their seats, the Raleigh (N.C.) News & Observer reported Tuesday.
Flight attendants told FBI agents they asked the couple to stop several times, and finally stopped serving them alcohol.
The woman allegedly told one flight attendant: "You and I are gonna have some serious confrontation when we get off this plane," while the prosecution affidavit alleges the man called a flight attendant a "punk" for refusing them bar service.
Ages were not given for Carl Persing and Dawn Sewell, who will appear in federal court on Dec. 11 in Wilmington, N.C., on charges of harassing a flight attendant.
Neither of them nor their lawyers responded to telephone calls from the newspaper, the report said.
