Apparently, a passenger traveling in the first class cabin on a British Airways flight decided to put his phone up the skirt of a flight attendant. The incident occurred on a flight from London to Cape Town. Multiple passengers reported witnessing the incident:
A British businessman arrested on a BA flight for filming up a stewardess’s skirt was let off with a £13 fine and allowed to walk off the same day, sources claim.
Married father-of-two Martyn Vaughan, 61, was flying First Class from Heathrow with British Airways and was arrested when he landed in South Africa.
But sources say he was wrongly charged with common assault, which allowed Vaughan, from Northamptonshire, to take a £13 ‘admission if guilt’ fine and walk free.
Maybe he got bored on the long flight and the IFE? It appears alcohol may have been a factor:
It was alleged that, after a few drinks, the father-of-two pushed the handset under the attendant’s uniform as she leaned over to serve another passenger.
Fellow passengers claim Mr Vaughan lit up his £6,000 First Class suite with the phone’s torch app before committing the assault.
There’s a joke in here somewhere about the US presidential election, but I’m going to avoid that.
I’ve never been to Africa. But, I just can’t imagine how someone is detained after a flight for something like this and gets away with a puny fine. I have to imagine the crew of the flight were there to verify the story. And yet, somehow the officer detaining the passenger missed the obvious concern.
