Yukari Miyamae Gropes TSA Agent At Phoenix Airport (UPDATE)
The district attorney's office of Maricopa County have decided to drop the charges and turn the case over to city prosecutors.
PREVIOUSLY, 7/16: Yukari Miyamae, a 61-year-old Colorado woman, faces felony charges for groping a TSA agent.
Miyamae was in Phoenix's Sky Airport on Thursday en route home to Colorado when the incident occurred, KWGN reports.
According to the arrest report, Miyamae is accused of groping TSA agent Barbara O'Toole's "left breast through her clothing and squeezing and twisting it with both hands without the victim's permission."
Miyamae admits to groping the agent and faces felony charges of sexual abuse, the Daily News reports. Miyamae was released from a Phoenix-area jail on Friday.
This is a rare incident in the age of the TSA, when more notably TSA agents are accused of groping grandmas, babies and even celebrities, from Rumsfeld to former beauty queens.
