The Bleacher Report's Master Tesfatsion reported on Wednesday that an unnamed NFL player filed a lawsuit against United Airlines. He claims that a drunk woman sexually assaulted and harassed him during a red-eye flight from Los Angeles to Newark, New Jersey on February 10th.
The lawsuit claims that airline employees didn't respond to the NFL player's multiple complaints until the woman grabbed his penis and removed the mask he was wearing to protect himself against the coronavirus.
The player also said the woman was intoxicated and taking prescription pills, per Tesfatsion. He said the woman wasn't moved until she ripped off his face mask, which was being worn to guard against COVID-19, and grabbed his penis.
The lawsuit, which was filed in the Superior Court of California of the County of Los Angeles, requested a jury trial in the case.
The unidentified NFL player and “John Doe 2” are seeking compensatory and punitive damages.

I don't know about you, but this sounds like my dream flight. Who wouldn't want a middle-aged drunk woman sexually harassing them? I'm sure she wasn't up to his normal standards, but that kind of attention could certainly boost someone's self-esteem.
