Nevada Man Charged With Lewd Acts On Plane

DENVER (AP) — A 63-year-old Nevada man is facing federal charges after being accused of committing lewd acts on an airplane.

U.S. Attorney John Walsh said Monday that Daniel Drinan of Reno was arrested Saturday night at Denver International Airport after passengers complained he had unbuttoned his pants while watching pornography. Prosecutors allege that his genitals were totally exposed when a flight attendant told him to “put his pants back together.”

Drinan was on Southwest Flight 1998 en route from Baltimore-Washington International Airport to Denver International Airport. He was arrested after the flight landed.

If convicted, Drinan faces up to 90 days in jail and a $250,000 fine.

It wasn’t immediately clear if he had a lawyer.
