    Southwest Airlines Frowns on Mile High Club

    RALEIGH, N.C. - A California couple are facing federal charges after they refused to stop "overt sexual activity" during a flight to Raleigh, authorities said. Carl Warren Persing of Lakewood, Calif., and Dawn Elizabeth Sewell of Huntington Beach, Calif., are accused of interfering with flight crew members during a Sept. 15 Southwest Airlines flight from Los Angeles with a stop in Phoenix.

    They face a Dec. 11 trial date in U.S. District Court in Wilmington.

    According to court documents, flight attendants saw Persing and Sewell kissing, embracing and "acting in a manner that made other passengers uncomfortable" while the plane was stopped in Phoenix. Persing was observed kissing Sewell near her breast and was also observed with his face pressed against Sewell's lower body.

    A flight attendant asked them to stop. They obeyed initially but resumed the behavior during the flight from Phoenix to Raleigh.


    When the flight attendant again requested them to stop, Persing allegedly told the flight attendant: "I'm going to give you one warning to get out of my face."

    Persing and Sewell continued the verbal harassment after a flight attendant refused to serve Persing alcohol, according to court documents.

    Law enforcement officials were waiting for the couple when they arrived at Raleigh-Durham International Airport.

    Messages left by The Associated Press for Persing and Sewell's attorneys were not immediately returned.

    The story just got more interesting...

    http://www.cnn.com/2006/LAW/11/15/sex.plane.ap/index.html

    RALEIGH, North Carolina (AP) -- A man arrested for allegedly engaging in "overt sexual activity" with his girlfriend on an airliner was lying with his head on her lap because he wasn't feeling well, his attorney said.

    That gesture was misinterpreted by a flight attendant, who humiliated and harassed the couple, said attorney Deb Newton, who represents Carl Persing.

    Persing and Dawn Sewell, both of Lakewood, California, face federal charges of interfering with flight crew members, allegedly by disobeying a flight attendant's request that they stop their public displays of affection.

    They were arrested on September 15 when they arrived at Raleigh-Durham International Airport on a Southwest Airlines flight from Los Angeles.

    "The one witness I've talked to and the defendant dispute almost everything in the government's affidavit as to what happened on that airplane," Newton said.

    She said Persing suffers from a chronic disease requiring medication that makes him drowsy, dizzy and irritable. She would not identify the disease to protect her client's privacy.

    Newton said she will ask that the charges be dismissed.

    Sewell's lawyer did not immediately return a call seeking comment.

    LOL, yeah you're probably right. Or just the flight attendants were jealous, or the other passengers were upset that they weren't gettin' any!! lol
