Again? A New Jersey man has been arrested for sexual assaulting a sleeping woman on a plane. 48-year-old Bawer Aksal of North Bergen has been accused of groping the breasts and genitals of a woman as she slept next to him on a flight from Phoenix to Newark. The woman says that as she woke, Aksal was leaning in, whispering, "Kiss me."

Though Aksal admitted to touching the woman, he told authorities that it was all consensual. Regardless, his Pepé le Pew act got him arrested as soon as the plane touched down. Be careful of who you sit next to on planes, folks.
