Monica Amestoy Sues United Airlines Over Masturbating Passenger

A California teenager is suing United Airlines after she said the company did nothing to prevent a fellow passenger from joining the mile-high club with himself.

Monica Amestoy, 18, claims that while flying from New York to Los Angeles last October, she noticed the man fueling his pocket rocket, Courthouse News reported.

Amestoy, who is represented by Gloria Allred, says she allerted a flight attendant, who got the man to stop, but as soon as the attendant left, "the perpetrator exposed his penis and started to masturbate again," Amestoy's complaint states.

She complained again, but says the flight crew told her there was nothing more they could do, according to CBS LA.

She also says she was told she could not relocate because there were no empty seats in her class, according to KABC.

The flight crew allegedly took no further action to stop or relocate the man, even when Amestoy continued to complain.

Amestoy's father reported the incident to police, and the in-flight masturbator pleaded guilty.

United Airlines has released a statement saying, "The comfort and security of our customers is our top priority, and we will closely review this complaint when we receive it."

The suit accuses United Airlines of negligence, intentional infliction of emotional distress and false imprisonment.
