The woman said she fell asleep but felt "a movement" on the right side of her sweater near her bra line about 15 to 20 minutes into the flight.

After he was arrested, Bruce Alexander reportedly told authorities that Trump "says it is okay to grab women by their private parts".

After that, the woman stood up, turned around and told Alexander, sitting behind her, "that she didn't know why he thought it was OK [to touch her] and he needed to stop", the complaint said.

The complaint, filed Monday, alleges that Alexander "made abusive sexual contact" with a female passenger on a Southwest Airlines flight from Texas to New Mexico "by touching the passenger's breast, without their permission".

Fans of the " Titanic " could soon fulfill their dream of sailing the vessel by traveling on the Titanic II . It will be slightly wider than its predecessor and will include plenty of lifeboats.

On it, Mr Trump can be heard saying that "you can do anything" to women and "grab them by the pussy".

A Florida man had a really interesting justification for his groping of a woman on a Southwest Airlines flight, the U.S. Attorney's Office in New Mexico said.

She said that she observed a "hand that had thick fingers, [that] were hairy and had dirty fingernails".

It's unclear at this time whether Alexander has retained legal counsel.

Cracksman caps great day for team Gosden
We might argue all night long about 2018's horse of the year in Europe, but there will be less debate about who trains it. It was a big-race treble for the Gosden team following the earlier victories of Stradivarius and Roaring Lion .

Before the flight landed at Albuquerque International Sunport, the crew asked local law enforcement to meet the plane on arrival, citing 'reports of a customer's alleged inappropriate behavior onboard, ' according to the airline. He recalled only that the woman in front of him had spoken to him and then changed seats. "You can do anything", Trump said. He asked the arresting officer what the sentence was for the crime he was being charged with.

Alexander was questioned by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and told them he could not recall touching the woman and was asleep most of the flight.

Authorities said Alexanders hands and physical description matched those given by the woman.

Alexander remains in custody pending a preliminary hearing and a detention hearing scheduled for Tuesday. After the woman moved seats, the man went "from zero to sixty in nano-seconds" and started yelling at flight attendants, forcing the plane to be diverted to Albuquerque where he was arrested.
